We welcome volunteers and have a range of activities for interested parties to be involved with:
- help update the species lists in the database;
- input data from a variety of documentary sources to enable us to maintain and enhance the database of records;
- work on our library, which could do with a re-organisation.
For students who are studying specialist biological subjects at University or have finished a degree, we would welcome them to:
- carry out surveys, other than the NARRs survey and the Shore Thing survey (see separate pages):
- habitat mapping in the intertidal zone;
- mapping Zostera beds;
- bumble bee surveys;
- bat surveys – both roost and ‘transect-type’ surveys;
- small mammal surveys;
- grasshopper and bush cricket surveys;
- assist with phase 2 habitat surveys.
As part of Environment Guernsey, in our role supporting the management of local areas of important nature conservation value, we also would value volunteers who would like to:
- do fixed point photography to monitor various sites;
- do mini surveys of species breeding or visiting sites;
- monitor disturbance;
- remove invasive non-natives;
- carry out small scale maintenance of areas around rare plants or where rare insects are known.
Please contact us at the GBRC if you are interested.
