Go Batty for Eels
kingston university, biodiversity, eel monitoring


If you're just batty about the environment then why not help out the Kingston University Biodiversity Action Group by joining in one of their conservation projects? The group is committed to maintain Kingston's green spaces and protecting the local wildlife by getting actively involved with the community. By volunteering your time, not only will you be helping the environment, but you'll also learn something, make friends, and have fun.

Eel Monitoring
24th April, 2pm-4pm, Hogsmill River & Knight's Park Campus


Everyone will meet at Knight's Park, and then travel down to Hogsmill river, where you will collect data on the eel population by monitoring the eel trap. It is the third year in a wider run programme by the Zoological Society of London to help save a critically endangered species. You will receive professional training and work with a renowned conservationist body.

Bat Walk
29th April, Hogsmill River & Knight's Park Campus

Using specialist bat detectors, you will be guided along the riverside for a walk and talk, as you look and listen for bats. Learn about a misunderstood species, and find out what is being done to stop the bat decline in the area.

Mini Bioblitz
4th May, Kingston Hill Campus

Help out with a super-fast ecological survey at Kingston Hill campus, where you will identify as many bugs, birds, and other wildlife as possible.

Balsam Bash
8th & 29th May, 2pm-4pm, Hogsmill River & Knight's Park Campus

Most of the time we want to encourage plants to grow, but balsam is an invading plant that has rooted itself on Hogsmill River bank. Come and help keep the virulent plant at bay by giving it a good old bash.
