Rare species

Get Involved!

In 2017 we are aiming to recruit an army of dedicated species monitors to help us continue to look after the sites where some of the UK's rarest species are found. No previous experience is needed, just a keen pair of eyes and commitment to conservation

Species Monitor Tasks include;

  1. Visit sites once a year, recording presence of species
  2. Carry out population counts
  3. Monitor site condition
  4. Liase with landowners
  5. Carry out light habitat restoration work (such as removal of Bramble)
  6. Send records and photos to SRT
  7. Be part of a our fight to save species from extinction!

If you think you might be interested, have a look at the maps and see if any sites are near you (or in places you'd like to visit). Because we are a small organisation we are looking for people who are good at working independently, but we will give as much support as we can!
