To purchase equipment to make instructional videos for people to watch and that can be used to run free workshops and events in the future.

I have set up this fundraiser as I want to be in a position to run as wide a range of free events and workshops as soon as possible, once it is safe to run events again. I also plan to use the equipment to make short videos in my garden during lockdown. These videos will be available free on social media to encourage people to take an interest in the wildlife in their gardens and also maybe help them identify some wildlife.

Exactly what is purchased will depend on how much is raised. I have set a £500 target but really that is just a figure I plucked from thin air. The more I raise the more I can put towards buying equipment and to run as wide a variety of free events as possible.

Equipment purchased could include:

- bug pots

- insect nets

- sample trays

- pond dipping nets

- ID guides

- mammal traps (for live trapping)

- hedgehog tunnels

- bat detectors

- trail camera

- moth trap

Thanks to anyone that makes a donation. Really appreciate it and I am always happy to assist with the identification of any wildlife you cannot name.

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
