FSC BioLinks project announced

The Field Studies Council have secured a £1.23 million The National Lottery grant through the Heritage Lottery Fund to fund invertebrate identification training and recording events across the West Midlands and South East England.

The project will include training courses covering beetles, true flies, aculeate hymentoptera, molluscs, freshwater invertebrates, true bugs, arachnids and (most importantly) soil invertebrates.

Earthworm ID course

The Earthworm Society of Britain was a proud supporter of this fantastic project and participated in the development of the project plan regarding earthworm training. We look forward to working with the FSC to deliver a host of earthworm recorder training opportunities during this 5-year project.

If you would like to be kept in the loop about the free (or heavily subsidised) opportunities for training and recording that FSC BioLinks will deliver you can register your interest via the FSC BioLinks newsletter: http://www.tombio.uk/biolinks-signup
