These surveys aim to enhance current knowledge of Alderney's environment. The information is used by AWT to inform conservation management plans, planning applications, research and education. 

AWT also collates wildlife sightings and other sources of ecological information regarding Alderney.

If you have a wildlife sighting, you can let us know by submitting a sighting using our online form.
