Dragon Finder is our flagship project, started in London
last October. It brings together habitat
conservation work with a creative range of educational and fun events. Activities include pond creation and
management, training, walks, talks, events in swimming pools and boat
trips! We are also developing Scottish Dragon
Finder, and the River Nene version will work in Northamptonshire,
Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire. You canfind out more about the Dragon Finder approach at the website here.
The Development Officer for the River Nene project will need
to identify and build relationships with project partners, find sites for
activities, create habitat plans and ideas for training courses to engage more
people in surveying for amphibians and reptiles. They will create the Action Plan document to
submit to the Heritage Lottery Fund for the full grant.
