Sarah Maguire Testimonial

"Our main purpose is to collect and computerise biological records from the Channel Islands so that these can be used by amateur and professional naturalists, ecologists and other researchers. We run events and courses to help people connect to Jersey's wildlife."

Favourite Place in Jersey
Any outside space, where I can watch wildlife.

"The Jersey sub species of buff-tailed bumblebee, despite the name, does not have a buff tail. It is also known as the Jersey white-tailed bumblebee. This bumblebee is a native pollinator to Jersey and can have active nests over winter. They nest underground often using small mammal holes with up to 500 workers in a nest. They can be found all over the Island, from gardens to sites of scientific interest."
