Volunteering and donations in 2016
Despite 2016 seeing another increase in projects and workload Seasons Ecology has still found time to continue to support local wildlife projects through donations and volunteering.
In February Seasons Ecology donated 50 dormouse boxes to the Woodland Trust and has coordinated and participated with monitoring as part of the PTES National Dormouse Monitoring Programme (https://ptes.org/campaigns/dormice/#ndmp).
In April, Hannah Maben met with the Blackdown Hills Natural Futures 2016 trainees to provide a brief insight into ecological consultancy. Subsequently Seasons Ecology has assisted with voluntary surveys and provided opportunities for the trainees to gain hands-on experience.
In September Hannah Maben provided a talk and led a bat walk for 45 enthusiastic residents from the village of Ashill. The residents were keen to learn about how they can encourage bats in their local community and were excited to add to the local bat species records in just one night!
Whilst we do our best to promote paperless offices we still receive some post and are careful to remove and save any stamps that arrive. This year our stamp collections have be sent to Hospice Care (http://www.hospiscare.co.uk/) and Sands (www.uk-sands.org).
2017 will see the on-going voluntary monitoring of dormouse boxes at Cross Land and further bat talks and walks for local community groups.
