You are visiting the Pollinator Project in Guernsey
Do you want to make a difference to our nature?
We are a group of Guernsey people who are taking action to protect our pollinators, and where they live. We’re always interested in hearing from anyone that is just curious or wants to get involved. You might find yourself weighing seeds, editing the website, putting up bee hotels, raking hay or talking to a politician about protecting our island. We have a simple ethos, if we’re not enjoying it then it’s not worth doing.
To get involved, just click on the button and send us a message or you can see any current opportunities on Neighbourly here https://www.neighbourly.com/project/63491d4128174d13cff695b4
What might I do?
You don’t need any special skills, like us, you just need to care about nature and be an enthusiast. If you can organise, use a keyboard or look after a garden you’re going to find something to suit you. We also welcome people who have worked in the arts or education.
We get involved in education programmes from assemblies in schools to bringing Professor Dave Goulson and Nick Bug Boy Baker to the island. In the summer we run walks along the cliffs with naturalists who share their knowledge, and visit community groups around the islands.
If science interests you, we collect data via our Bumblr app, carry out field work for scientists based in the UK and Germany and contribute to international conferences.
Campaigning against the use of pesticides involves the use of social media, keeping on top of the news, or even helping with the pesticide amnesties we have run.
And we have even been known to pick up a fork or scythe or two to protect and enhance fields, gardens, window boxes, or playgrounds.
