Conservation Project Volunteer

Volunteers are required to assist on a conservation project developed in response to the impact of development in the Cross Hands butterflyarea. The area affected is marshy grassland which is the habitat of the Marsh Fritillary butterfly (pictured) which is in decline due to the loss of its habitat.

Working with local people, the project aims to secure appropriate management of a substantial area of this marshy grassland habitat. The Conservation Project Officer is planning surveys on some of the managed sites for larval webs of the butterfly. As well as habitat monitoring and doing some practical work on managed sites involving scrub clearance using hand tools.
