We are now able to continue the project as restrictions have eased. All equipment is sanitised before and after every group/ individual has returned equipment.
Launched in February 2020 and funded through the Future Routes Fund (SNH, Re-Route and Young Scot) the ‘Discovering Nature on my Doorstep’ project will give young people on Glasgow’s Southside the chance to use high-tec equipment to discover some of the amazing wildlife all around them.
Participants will be able to:
> use specialist recording equipment to listen to bats;
> use infra-red trail cameras to capture pictures of animals active after dark;
> use moth traps to safely collect and view the spectacularly coloured moths that fly around gardens at night; and
> upload their pictures and recordings onto wildlife websites and contribute to ‘Citizen Science’
This is a unique project, run by young people, for young people. Our mission is to showcase the amazing wildlife around us and to encourage people to care for and protect it.
We are Michael, Jack and Eilidh, three young naturalists from Glasgow. Find out more about us on the ‘Project Team‘ page.
