We need you to become an ObstacEELS surveyor and join SERT in helping to map obstacles to eel migration across the Mole Catchment. The data you collect will enable a strategic approach to future eel projects along the Mole which will improve the river for this critically endangered species.
Online Training – We’ll be running through everything you need to know to become an ObstacEELS surveyor and getting you all set up on the reporting app. No prior experience necessary.
We’ll send out the link to join the online training 48 hours before the event.
Practical Training Sessions – A chance to put your new found skills to good use along the River Mole and its tributaries. We’ll be working together to survey a stretch of river and log the barriers we see to help you get to grips with the survey method.
Times: 10am-11.30am in Leatherhead or 1pm-2.30pm in Crawley.
Volunteers need to attend both the online and practical training to be part of the eel barrier walkover surveying teams.
