Welcome to the Earthworm Society of Britain

The Earthworm Society of Great Britain and Northern Ireland aims to promote and support scientific research so that earthworms and their environment can be better understood.

Through its work the society aims to encourage the conservation of earthworms and their habitats and to educate and inspire people so that these fascinating creatures may continue to be enjoyed in the future.

You can help support us by becoming a member!  We're also often out and about at bioblitz events so come and say hello and find out more about these fascinating creatures.
