2017 Onwards Rare Invertebrates in the Cairngorms Shining Guest Ant Survey Data
This dataset contains shining guest ant records gathered as part of the Rare Invertebrates in the Cairngorms Project. The Rare Invertebrates in the Cairngorms (RIC) project will work to improve the conservation fortunes of some of the Cairngorm National Parkís (CNPA) rarest species by recruiting local volunteers to help survey for them, as well as offering advice to landowners on how best to manage habitats for their needs. RIC is a partnership project involving RSPB Scotland, the Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA), Buglife Scotland, Butterfly Conservation Scotland and NatureScot.
Cairngorms National Park, Scotland
Volunteers were given training to find and identify the species and its habitat. To find the ant, volunteers would go to wood ant nests and observe the surface of the nest for up to 20 minutes (depending on the size of the nest) and look for the ant in amongst wood ants. Surveys conducted late Summer/ early Autumn.
