Do you love the Jurassic Coast? Do you have some time to speak about it to people in your community? Do you have a particular talent that you’d like to put to more use?

If the answer to these questions is yes, you could be our next Jurassic Coast Ambassador.

Our Ambassadors are a diverse group of people who give their time voluntarily to further the cause of the Jurassic Coast. Our group includes teachers, business owners, graphic designers, walks leaders, photographers and students.

Our Ambassadors deliver a variety of projects and activities with the support of the Jurassic Coast Trust, including leading guided walks, speaking to community groups, and providing content for our website.

One of our Ambassadors’ key roles is awareness-raising – telling people in their local community about the World Heritage Site and what makes it globally unique.

 

If you are interested in becoming an Ambassador, please contact us.

 

Here are some examples of what our Ambassadors do:
