WATCH is the junior part of the Wildlife Trusts. Alderney and Sark WATCH have plenty of in-island members, but also a large number of enthusiasts who live on the UK mainland and visit regularly. Our picture galleries and archives show something of the range of activities these busy WATCH groups undertake.

After the seabird wreck event in early 2014 there was great concern for the seabird colonies in and around Alderney's Ramsar site. Our ecologists have collected data throughout the seabird breeding season, along with marine and terrestrial surveys, as part of the Ramsar Management Plan and produced a detailed analysis of the breeding season and impacts caused by the wreck event.
