Volunteers involved with the Great Ouse Wetland project are about to share the secret lives of some of the smallest species of wildlife in the UK.
Voracious water beetles, delicate damselfly nymphs and a multitude of moths will become the stars of wildlife films created by the team of volunteers. WWT Welney Wetland Centre is the location for a macro filming workshop for the volunteers of this project. It will introduce the participants to this type of filming, provide subjects for them to practice on and hopefully increase their confidence in this field.
Adam Finch, media production officer, said: “This project is absolutely fantastic for connecting people with wildlife and raising awareness of the amazing diversity of species we have in the region.
“Considering some of the volunteers had never picked up a video camera before, the quality of the footage is superb. Without their help, we wouldn’t be able to tell such a detailed story of the beautiful array of species and natural spectacles across the seasons.
“It is a brilliant opportunity for people to have a go at something different and offer creative skills to help support conservation.”
