Thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund ‘Skills for the Future Programme’, Danielle Shorthall from Craigavon is celebrating her success having completed a year-long paid nature skills traineeship with local nature conservation charity, Ulster Wildlife.

Throughout her action packed year, Danielle, alongside five other trainees, gained a wide range of specialist skills and training required to help secure a future career protecting our natural heritage, from laying hedges and controlling invasive species to monitoring coastal habitats.
