Conservation group in moves to protect rare mole cricket

News | Published:

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.
