The Earthworm Society of Britain is a relatively new group, set up in 2009 to bring the world of earthworms to a wider audience. The group aims to promote and support scientific research so that earthworms and their environment can be better understood. The society also aims to encourage the conservation of earthworms and their habitats.
We conduct research projects and also manage the national recording scheme for earthworms in the UK. We run regular training sessions that are open to all, to encourage and support people to collect and identify earthworms and contribute their records to the recording scheme.
We have an active programme of fun outdoor events such as worm charming, and like to attend BioBlitzes and other public events.
