The Great Garden Bat Watch - Returns for 2022!

2nd June to 5th June 2022. .

Please join the Jersey Bat Group for the fourth Great Garden Bat Watch!

This event combines the joy of (hopefully!) watching bats with citizen science based research that can help us better understand bats across Jersey.

We are particularly keen to receive sightings of bats from St Helier and other urban areas around the Island to help us with our research into Jersey's urban bat populations.

Primary learning for Spring/Summer terms

Our learning programme for primary schools is back! With spring on the horizon now is the time to connect to nature and learn outside.

Sessions are FREE and can be booked for schools, community groups such as guides/scouts and holiday clubs. 


NEW for 2022! - Resource boxes 

We have a new resource box available to borrow focusing on Moths! You get a moth trap for over night use, sampling pots and trays and a range of ID guides. 

Placements for Pollinators

I have had the fantastic opportunity to volunteer with the Jersey Biodiversity Centre as part of my dissertation research project this summer. Although the dry and sunny days this summer have appeared few and far between, those days where the sun made an appearance have seen me wandering around the beautiful island of Jersey to complete Flower-insect timed (FIT) counts. With the difficult year we have had, and the subsequent disturbance to my formal University education, this was the first time I was truly able to experience field work.

Pollinator Placements

During the last 6 weeks I have been on a full-time placement at the Jersey Biodiversity Centre. Throughout this placement I have had the opportunity to undertake a wide-variety of work, which includes conducting various surveys and writing articles for the public. Although there was a wide-variety of surveys to conduct while focusing on a wide-variety of species, biodiversity conservation is at the heart of everything at the Jersey Biodiversity Centre.
