The Nurturing Nature project has now launched, with a programme of training sessions and courses that will take place through 2023. The aim of the project is to engage people with training, biodiversity monitoring, mentoring, and practical action to enhance habitats and protect biodiversity on Cranborne Chase.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to identify the species around you, or to contribute to the protection of the natural world, then these training courses might be for you.

A mixture of on-site and online learning opportunities. Training will be delivered by experts from the Species Recovery Trust and Acer Ecology.

What is the training for?

The training will equip people with the skills and capability to carry out vital natural surveys on a range of species such as birds, grasses, trees, mammals, and fungi. Once training is completed, you’ll be given opportunities to join us in the field and conduct wildlife surveys.

Why are surveys important?

The more information we have about the natural world the better situated we will be to protect and enhance it. Surveys undertaken by volunteers will form a new baseline of data which can then inform priorities for action.
