Are you interested in finding out more about wildlife? If so, volunteers are needed to help with national or locally run surveys. Sometimes training is available as part of these but our calendar also has details of other training courses, which may help improve your species identification and survey skills. Use the search facility to choose between Surveys , Training , Events or Meetings , or search by date or keywords.
Our calendar is not exhaustive and we need you to send us details of relevant events to keep it up to date. You may also find details of other biodiversity related events on the Wales Biodiversity Partnership website.
Lots of wildlife talks and activities at Plas y Brenin.
More detail will follow on on the PYB website.
Habitat management for reptiles and amphibians.
We are in the midst of the 6th mass extinction event, with extinctions occurring faster than at any time in the last 65 million years. ‘Bioabundance’ is in decline, with recent studies showing that insects in particular seem to be disappearing fast. If it continues, this will have profound consequences for mankind and for our planet.
Dave Goulson will explain why insects are decline, and suggest how we should tackle this crisis, first by turning our gardens into oases for life, and second by fundamentally changing the way we grow food.
Lunch and then a short plant survey walk.
Conservation events in Snowdonia.
Join the NWMG during the day to check some bat boxes to see who is home! Sam is often able to show bats in the hand so you can appreciate these marvellous creatures up close.
Followed by some food in the Oakley Arms, Sam will be carrying out some trapping for Nathusius' Pipistrelle - this is part of the Welsh National Nathusius' Project so you will be helping
us to gather important data on this species.
