Volunteer Wildlife Surveyor

Posted on:

Volunteers are sought to participate in biodiversity surveys, alongside Queen’s University Belfast, Master Student, James.

Biodiversity loss is widely regarded as a major problem facing the world, even rivalling the threat of climate change. Thus, it is more important than ever to record our local flora and fauna, therefore we are looking for a group of volunteers to help survey the wildlife and plants of the Ring of Gullion area. This would involve going out and surveying for specific species of plants or animals one or two days a week throughout the summer, with a minimum time commitment of 1 hour per survey session.

Anyone is welcome to join as we will have a range of surveying opportunities and training will be provided.

Potential animal groups for surveying are:

  • Mammals e.g. squirrels
  • Invertebrates e.g. dragonflies and butterflies
  • Birds e.g. song birds

Full training will be provided.
