Submit your site to the CI Pollinator Friendly areas map
Welcome, have you created a fantastic example of a space within the Channel Islands designed to support our insect pollinators? Our aim is to encourage members of the public to set aside at least 10% of their gardens and/or land for pollinators. We want to see more wild spaces in both our rural and urban areas dedicated to supporting our declining insects.
What type of site are we looking for?
If you have sowed wildflower seeds, planted flowering plants for pollinators, if you have allowed an area to grow wild or sowed your field using an insect pollinator friendly seed mix, please join in and add it to our map. There is no limit on size - it could be a tiny patch on your street that you and your neighbours are proud of, or it could be a wildflower meadow you have planted, we want to know about them. Just so you know this form is not for recording existing and established semi-natural habitats currently managed for nature conservation, we already know about them. We want to know about your areas and we would love to know about areas free to visit by the public, but please also map your private sites as well.
What you need to do
There is a basic form with some mandatory information and a few optional extra fields to fill in. You must provide the location of your site. Once you have submitted your area, we will review it, we might ask for more information and then we will upload it to the map.
Please make separate records for each pollinator friendly area, complex multi-geometry drawing is not possible on this form.
