WrEN – Woodland cReation and Ecological Networks.

The acronym might be slightly forced but the project was fantastic. Addressing a clear and sizeable gap in knowledge, the WrEN project investigates the effect woodland creation and connectivity has on biodiversity. For further details of the project please visit the University of Stirling website. I spent the summer of 2014 working with WrEN and learnt a great deal about running conservation projects, as well as enjoying myself massively. My role was variable and dynamic but predominantly involved small mammal trapping and vegetation surveys. As and when needed, I also conducted site assessments, was involved with planning, negotiating access, volunteer coordination and data processing.
