Event details

Fri, 21/09/2018 - 10:00am - 4:00pm

A training event for those interested in learning about identification of beetles, as well as how to monitor for them, which can help inform us about environmental conditions and quality.

Wildlife Counts is a Manx Lottery Trust project led by Manx Wildlife Trust for the Manx Biological Recording Partnership (MBRP). Its all about making sure we put wildlife on the map and include it as part of decision making. On this occasion we have a great opportunity to learn more about beetles with Stuart Corbett who often visits, and all about how we can monitor populations as well as possibly understanding more about environmental quality on the Isle of Man. The aim is to find more people who can help increase the monitoring and generation of data for the Isle of Man - something that really helps put wildlife on the map!

Refreshments will be available, but lunch is not provided, please bring your own food and suitable clothing as we will be out in surrounding area to examine how we monitor for beetles. Importantly if you have any beetles you wish to identify from monitoring work, then this is a great chance to examine what you have found from recording over the summer months.
