There are plenty of wildlife surveys to get involved with including moths, butterflies and dragonflies, aquatic invertebrates, bats, water voles, aquatic and terrestrial plants, otters, small mammals, grasshoppers and many, many more.

Opportunities are plentiful to learn about monitoring equipment, including fixed-point photography, trail cameras, bat detectors, moth traps and associated data input and collation.
