Earthworm Society of Britain

Summary

The Earthworm Society of Great Britain and Northern Ireland aims to promote and support scientific research so that earthworms and their environment can be better understood. Through its work the society aims to encourage the conservation of earthworms and their habitats and to educate and inspire people so that these fascinating creatures may continue to be enjoyed in the future.

The specific aims of the society are: 1. To conduct research into earthworms in the UK. 2. To promote knowledge and appreciation of earthworms within the non-scientific community. 3. To educate the non-scientific community in earthworm biology and ecology.

We do this by encouraging people to engage in research projects, training people to collect and identify earthworms and contribute their records to the recording scheme and hold public engagement and education events to bring the wonderful world of earthworms to a wide audience.
