Do you want to spend more time outdoors, help conservation or learn more about the Thames?! We're looking for volunteers to be part of an exciting new project to conserve smelt (a small predatory fish that smells distinctively of cucumber) in central London.
Between March and July 2015 we need volunteer citizen scientists to visit the foreshore of the River Thames once per week at sites between Hammersmith and Greenwich. As a volunteer, you will provide vital data on this Biodiversity Action Plan species to inform conservation and will contribute to one of the most ambitious studies of the ecology of the Tidal Thames ever undertaken!
