    Google some terms like 'environment' or 'conservation' and the names of specific towns/counties - the search results should give you some organisations to email or write to with a copy of your CV (make the letter brief and to the point, and state the specific dates you are available, the sort of job you want and whether you are prepared to volunteer or you expect a wage). Be prepared to write 50 letters/emails and only get a few replies, and keep asking.

    Here is just one suggestion : http://jobs.wwt.org.uk/vacancies/
    And a generally useful website : http://www.greenchoices.org/work-mon...tings-agencies

    How did the search go? I'm thinking about doing the same thing for next year. How difficult was finding a placement/what do you do when you're there?
