Help take care of some of the region’s most important yet declining wildlife species by carrying out surveys throughout the year. Volunteers spent the winter of 2011-12 monitoring red grouse, which rely heavily on the heather moorland. They’ve also been instrumental in monitoring just what larger effect the Forgotten Landscapes Project has had on the environment. Other wildlife monitoring activities have included recording and photographing at the FLP reed bed creation site where water levels, reed height, signs of mink and other general observations are recorded.

If you’re into birds, you can do the British Trust for Ornithology a massive favour and help out with the monthly Wetland Birds Survery of Garn Lakes Local Nature Reserve.
