There are many ways in which you can help us and help your local waters!
Contact us if you would like to join us for a day helping out – we are always looking for keen volunteers to come and give us a hand in many aspects of our work such as : Japanese knotweed spraying, looking for sparling or tree planting.
Joining us on some work days can give you hands on experience of what we do, and it will also help you 'do your bit' for the rivers!
As we are a charitable non-profit organisation, we are always looking to source extra money to help fund practical works and local projects. You can help us continue our important work by providing a donation to the Trust.
You can help by donating to the Trust via EveryClick, however we also encourage everyone to sign up to 'Give as you live'.
'Give as you live' allow our supporters to raise free donations simply by shopping using your 'Give as you live' card. Shop at over 4,100 leading stores such as Amazon, eBay, Sainsbury's and Tesco to name a few; these leading shops will donate a percentage of what you purchase from them, directly to the Trust – costing you nothing.
Sign up and shop to support GFT by clicking here!
Amazon has recently released Amazon Smile; if you shop through this link, Amazon will donate a percentage of your total shop to GFT, but you need to register us as your chosen charity.
Thank you for your support.
Galloway Fisheries Trust is looking to recruit a new Fisheries Biologist to join our team. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to take a lead role in many of the GFT research, monitoring and restoration programmes. This is a full time permanent post.
The aims of this project are to improve both instream and riparian habitats for both salmonids and freshwater pearl mussels; freshwater pearl mussels are now a critically endangered species and there are very few known populations remaining in Scotland.
