Appropriate training will be provided and expenses re-imbursed where necessary. RSPB relies on the support and generosity of volunteers to make a difference. The RSPB has come together with partners across Duddingston and Holyrood Park to deliver a BioBlitz event on June 25th - celebrating biodiversity, local greenspaces and community. A 'BioBlitz' is a full-day event bringing naturalists and members of the public together with the goal of surveying and documenting all forms of life in a designated natural space. It is a great way for organisations and local communities to collaborate in learning about and being inspired by wildlife within our city.
