Op KINGFISHER 2 - replanting ranunculus on the River Avon near Salisbury.
Nick attended Op KINGFISHER 2 for an enjoyable day out and to meet like-minded professionals as part of his resettlement into environmental conservation.
- The group picked and replanted a riverbed plant, ranunculus, to stabilise the chalk stream bed and improve the habitat for the various fish species.
- Project partner, MOD ecologist Oli, talked to the group about why and how the MOD funds ecology programmes on the MOD estate and about the careers available in the DIO (Defence Infrastructure Organisation ) working in ecological conservation.
- Project manager, Nick, from our other project partner, Wiltshire Wildlife Trust's Rivers Team, explained how this particular project was financed and what is involved in running an annual cycle of such projects.
- Service-leavers spent several hours working alongside and connecting with conservation professionals and other service-leavers, exchanging notes, top tips and widening their contact base to help with resettlement into this area.
- At least one attendee is now a regular volunteer with WWT and gaining qualifications and experience as a result.
