Hello, I’d better get on and introduce myself, I’m Roland Gauvain and for the last 11 years I have been the manager of the Alderney Wildlife Trust.
My job is rather varied, I am responsible for the work of all the other Trust staff, but as most of them understand their jobs a lot better than I do I spend most of my time helping the staff by getting them the resources they need to make their jobs possible. This means I spend a lot of time fundraising, speaking to the island’s government and generally trying to get as many people as possible to support our work. How many staff do you think the Trust has (hint all our full time staff have now done a blog)? And can you guess how many people belong to the Trust (are its members), if it helps there are 1,900 people living on Alderney at the moment.
