Our enthusiastic volunteers are the essential link between idea and action for the charity, generously donating their time and expertise to assist us in our work. Sign-up to this group is processed primarily via a Google Form, the information from which is then processed by our Secretary and added to our Volunteer Database (in Microsoft Word), then imported into our Mailchimp list. Each volunteer upon sign-up selects a number of working groups which they would like to contribute to, and all subsequent correspondence is directed to them according to these choices. Each working group is lead by a member of the executive committee, who oversees their work across various platforms and initiatives. The current working groups in usage are as follows: I.          Networking: establishing partnerships with other conservation organizations, and/ acting as a contact and spokesperson for a proposed connection along these lines. II.         Financial: developing much-needed fundraising schemes including with personal donations, corporate sponsorship, grant applications and events; essential for our continued functioning. III.        Project Development: central to our operations, these skilled members upscale our projects and work on innovative solutions to existing problems. IV.        Journalistic: confident writers are sought to create regular blog content and articles in line with our charity’s messaging and goals. V.         Community Building: a role requiring compassionate, motivated individuals to express support for and involve our new recruits in a mentoring system. VI.        Video Systems: communicating our work through this digital medium to a much wider audience, spreading inspiring messages of our goals and aims. VII.       (Social) Media: spreading word of HNP through the infinite world of social media to engage with the masses and grow our team- especially amongst youth. Also contacting press where opportunity arises. VIII.      Research: for those of you in academia, this is the spot to be. Help out as a scientific advisor, start discussions with other intellectuals, and learn some of the nuts and bolts of conservation. IX.        Education: bringing our work to youth and schools, teaching the next generation about compassionate conservation and the need to protect all life.
