North Pennines Survey Project 2015 – 2019: Cold-blooded and Spineless is an ambitious and exciting North Pennines AONB Partnership project which aims to record and celebrate invertebrates in the area. This is a five-year Heritage Lottery Funded initiative, running from 2015-2019.
How to get involved
To help inform conservation efforts we want to develop people’s expertise in some important and accessible groups of invertebrates. During the first year we will be offering training for beginners. There will be six, two day workshops over spring and summer. These will be paired alongside field trips and surveys to help people to improve their practical skills.
More advanced training will be offered in years two to five. There will be a wider range of public events to encourage people to gather data at key sites throughout the North Pennines.
