Hello, my name is Vicky, and I am the Coordinator for the Wildlife Warden Scheme set up by Action on Climate in Teignbridge (ACT). The Scheme was launched in October 2020 to help local wildlife survive the ecological and climate emergency. We currently have more than 100 Wildlife Wardens around the Teignbridge district. We offer training and support to anyone who would like to volunteer as a Wildlife Warden – we will help you with projects you would like to take on in your Parish and we may be able to put you in touch with other local volunteers. For more information about the scheme, please download this document and don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to become a Wildlife Warden or have any questions. My contact details can be found under ‘Contact’. Whether you would like to become a Wildlife Warden or not, you are welcome to use the resources on this website.
If you live outside Teignbridge, why not set up your own Wildlife Warden Scheme? We created this document which contains advice on how to do this. We would like to share our experiences so that there are Wildlife Warden Schemes across the country, and are happy to give some help!
You can also find advice through the Devon Local Nature Partnership’s initiative Wild About Devon. They have put together a community toolkit to help those who want to set up their own wildlife groups and schemes, and are also offering advice and support to Parish and Town Councils.
We would like to thank Flavio Winkler Ford (pictured below), our Widlife Warden Scheme Coordinator from October 2020 to February 2023, for his enormous help and enthusiasm getting our project up and running! .
