The UK Pollinator Monitoring Scheme (PoMS) is open and recruiting for 2018!

The PoMS seeks the help of volunteers to collect data on pollinating insects, to help inform their conservation.

There are two ways to get involved.

One is to carry out a 10-minute Flower-Insect Timed Count. Anyone can take part between April and September, at any location where there are flowers and insects, and a full survey guide is provided.

A smaller group of volunteers is required to help with the systematic surveying of random sites across England, Scotland and Wales. This involves ‘adopting’ a 1km survey square, meeting on site with a PoMS team member and visiting the square on three further occasions during summer to collect insects with water-filled pan traps.

If you'd like to volunteer please email and visit the website for more details.
