Count your slugs! 🐌

(Okay, that’s a snail. There isn’t a slug emoji, though…)

From 20 January until 2 March 2020, the Royal Horticultural Society and Newcastle University are on a recruitment drive for 60 volunteers to help out with a year-long study.

You must:

  • Be interested in learning more about slugs and how to identify them
  • Be able to survey a garden at night for 30 minutes once a month for a full year
  • Be willing to collect slugs and send them to our scientist

In return, you’ll receive:

  • An invitation to a free face to face training course on slug identification (travel costs not covered)
  • All the materials needed for the survey at no cost to you
  • A free FSC guide to identifying slugs
  • Personal correspondence and support from the RHS scientist leading this research
