*Please note: all wildlife monitoring activities are currently on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic.*
Get involved in our wildlife monitoring programmes and help gather data on a variety of species and habitats. The results of these surveys help us with practical reserve management.
Opportunities come up across all three counties, and sometimes involve working remotely assessing or collating data.
- Bat call surveys
- Grassland assessment
- Aquatic insect surveys
- Fixed point photography
- Dormouse nest box monitoring
- Breeding bird survey
- And many more...
Previous experience of surveying is useful but not essential for most surveys. All you need is the enthusiasm to come out regularly and the drive to learn more about our wonderful local wildlife.
