'Slugs Count' volunteer

RHS Garden Wisley, Woking, Surrey

Unpaid

The RHS and Newcastle University are carrying out a one-year study of slugs in gardens, which involves citizen scientists surveying their gardens and sending slugs for identification to RHS Garden Wisley. This important research project will help develop the understanding of slug species and their abundance, the impact they are having and shape advice for gardeners in the future.

A volunteer is needed based at RHS Garden Wisley to assist with the day-to-day running of the experiment, particularly the receiving of slugs through the post and processing them for further scientific work. The successful applicant will be working directly with staff from the Plant Health Team at Wisley and at our field research facility. We are looking for someone to start in April 2020 and the experiment will be running for one year.
