On until 6 Aug 2018
This August we will be repeating our successful yellow meadow ant survey, but this time moving to Bushy Park. Last year, thanks to our dedicated volunteers, we measured an astounding 732 anthills over 4 days in Richmond Park, showing that ant hill size is directly linked to grassland age. The findings give conservationists a new way nationally to determine the age of ecologically-important grassland sites which do not have a well-documented history. We want to put this into action by investigating whether the ant hills in Bushy Park, which has a less well documented history than Richmond Park, follow the same pattern, and we need your help!
