Public notice: Following the advice from the Prime Minister to avoid all unnecessary social contact due to COVID-19, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel all Mission: Invertebrate activities across the parks until the end of June. Please ensure you check our updates page for the very latest information about park closures and access to facilities. For any queries please feel free to email us at

Mission: Invertebrate is a project aiming to enrich wildlife in the Royal Parks, some of the largest and busiest greenspaces in London. We’re doing this by supporting invertebrates, the parks’ most important inhabitants that all other wildlife relies on.

We’re getting people of all ages involved in our work to make sure Mission: Invertebrate’s impact lasts long into the future. Together we’re improving habitats in our parks, conducting research, and putting on events to spread the word – all to help invertebrates thrive.

All our work is made possible through funding from players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Thanks to their support everyone can learn about the vital role invertebrates play and what we can do to stop their populations declining.
