Conservation group in moves to protect rare mole cricket
EFFORTS are being made to protect Guernsey's rare population of mole crickets.
The species, which has been native to the island for a long time, has become increasingly rare since the fall of the horticultural industry and is now the focus of attempts to provide habitats for local wildlife.
Jamie Hooper, a conservation officer at La Societe Guernesiaise, said it was a 'rather unique species'.
Mr Hooper urged anyone who encounters the rare species when digging in their garden to contact the Guernsey Biological Records Office with a report.
