BBC Calls out For Wildlife Gardeners

Is your garden teeming with wildlife? Have you actively encouraged birds, bees, bats and bugs to call your back-yard their home? Have you and your neighbours got together to create a hedgehog highway? Have you bought the local garden centre out of bird boxes? Or welcomed in reptiles with corrugated iron sheets? Could you share the secrets of how you made your family garden a sanctuary for Britain’s favourite wildlife? If you are as passionate about supporting all creatures great and small as we are, then the makers of a new programme for the BBC wants to hear from you! Froglife is helping Outline Productions spread the word about a new landmark series they are making for BBC ONE about the perilous state of Britain’s wildlife and what we can all do to help. Whether you have a small city garden, a big country one, a farm or a high-rise balcony - there is so much that can be done to support the wildlife all around us. Our gardens are Britain’s most vital nature reserve and we want to find inspirational stories of families who have turned their small patch into wildlife friendly spaces. The idea is to find amazing wildilfe gardeners, so that the public can follow their lead and make their gardens wildlife friendly too. So if you’ve put in a pond, built a rockery, assembled a log pile or done anything whatsoever to discover the amazing wildlife living on your doorstep, your story could help inspire other British families to do the same. If you want to find out more and share your experiences, then please contact wildlife@outlineproductions.co.uk

Invitation to camera operators, sound recordists, editors and bird lovers to Birdlife Malta's Spring Watch camp - April 15th and April 30th, 2012

Spring Watch 2012 is a conservation camp which forms an integral part of BirdLife Malta’s fight against illegal spring hunting. This camp is organised during the peak spring migration period in Malta and thus the period with the highest expected hunting intensity. Birdlife Malta are extending an invitation to camera operators, sound recordists and editors to join other volunteers during the camp. The main activities of the camp are monitoring of hunting activity at sites around Malta, identifying and recording illegal hunting incidents (e.g. shooting of protected species) using video and still cameras, logging all footage for submission to the authorities together with written reports. At the end of each day footage and images will need to be captured from several cameras, cataloged and a daily video update edited for upload to Birdlife's youtube channel and website. The footage gathered during the camp will also be archived and made available for future use in longer films documenting hunting/trapping in Malta. The camp will be held between April 15th and April 30th, 2012. But volunteers will be variously arriving early, staying late and for different lengths of time.

For more information about the camp, including accommodation and booking, please visit the Spring Watch 2012 page on Birdlife Malta's website Alternatively you can send an email to springwatch@birdlifemalta.org

Short Wildlife films needed for BBC Big Screen at the Bristol Festival of Nature (June 16th-17th)

Throughout the festival we will be using the BBC's 'Big Screen' in Millennium Square to showcase natural history filmmaking from around the south west.

We are looking for people who can contribute short films about wildlife, the environment, biology, the universe...

The ratio of the screen is 16:9, so films in this format are ideal, but we can work with other sizes and they need to be under 3 minutes long. If this interests you, I would be very pleased to hear from you. We are aiming to collect the footage by the end of February. Contact me at Sarah@bnhc.org.uk or call +44 (0)117 9304926. See the website: www.bnhc.org.uk
