Relative newcomers to Redesdale, Wild Intrigue was awarded £1,885.12 to enchant residents through a series of wildlife surveying training workshops and events during Summer 2019.

Under the project title Hidden Redesdale, Wild Intrigue trained local residents how to use camera traps and bat detectors, how to survey for moths, and established a camera loan scheme for residents to use in their gardens.

Hidden Redesdale was an opportunity for residents of this region to discover and help conserve the wildlife on our doorstep. We were excited to offer a series of free training events where attendees could not only learn new skills in discovering wildlife, but could meet like-minded people in the community too. Thanks to the Revitalising Redesdale ‘Community Heritage Fund’, we’ve been able to offer a brand new service to the area too, equipment loan schemes, where after attending our training sessions residents of Redesdale can loan camera traps, bat detectors and moth traps to discover the ‘hidden’ wildlife in their very own gardens. – Heather Louise Devey, Wild Intrigue

Look out for future Wild Intrigue events in Redesdale, and beyond!
