Essex Rivers Hub

Do you currently live in South Essex and are interested in surveying for Otters, Water Voles, Water Shrews or harvest mice (or all four)? Well Riversearch needs your help on many stretches of watercourses in this area.

Riversearch was set up in 2007 and has trained over 200 volunteer surveyors to search for Otters, Water Voles, Water Shrews and Harvest Mice. These surveys help to identify where these species occur and whether the populations are expanding or declining, which can help to target conservation efforts and identify where further investigation is needed.

Don't worry if you need some help with identifcation skills as courses are held throughout the year and are open to everyone, regardless of previous experience or knowledge.

If you are interested in getting involved with Riversearch then please follow this link, which will give you all the information you should need including current areas that are not surveyed or you can contact us using the contact tab at the top of the page.
