Welcome To Ealing Wildlife Group!

EWG is a local wildlife conservation organisation aiming to protect and educate about local wildlife and space for nature.

Our ethos as an organisation is defined by the three C’s:

Community: 

We aim to inspire, educate and foster new connections between local people, neighbourhoods and the natural world

Conservation 

We aim to highlight and protect our flora and fauna, and the natural habitats we are lucky to have on our doorsteps in Ealing 

Collaboration

We enjoy working with others and forging relationships with all stakeholders, groups and individuals working towards a common goal; the protection of our natural spaces and the life they contain

Have a look around our new website – we’re sharing details of our activities from the past and present, as well as opportunities for the future. Above all, we want to showcase what goes on behind the scenes at EWG.

Costons Lane Nature Reserve Summer BioBlitz @ Costons Lane Nature Reserve
Jul 23 @ 10:00 am – 10:00 pm

Come join the next of our volunteer days where we’ll be working to get our new nature reserve in shape! It’s Bioblitz Time! Join us in discovering just what lives in our new nature reserve! We will be recording and observing all kinds of plants, insects, animals and birds. We’ll be submitting records from our BioBlitz to London’s biodiversity database. If you’re a beginner or experienced naturalist, anything you see will be important! We need bug hunters, bird watchers, plant specialists, bat watchers! There is a path now so we can get in and really have a good poke around, but there are a lot of brambles so sturdy shoes (and most likely wellies) and long trousers are recommended.
You don’t have to come for the full 12 hours, just pop in when you can for as long as you want and let’s see what we can find! The entrance to the reserve is off Ruislip Rd across from the Lidl Car Park, we have a sign on the gate!

The pandemic has been challenging for us, like everyone! But we’re slowly getting back to normal. Over the coming months we hope to get back to hosting volunteer days, educational and fun activities, community events and a few social get-togethers too. We will announce all upcoming opportunities here, in addition to social media. However, you should sign up for our newsletter too to make sure you don’t miss out! 

We don’t have a formal or paid membership list. Just join us on our very active Facebook group or follow us on InstagramTwitter and YouTube. Tag us too, #ealingwildlifegroup.

If you’d like to drop us a line, feel free to get in touch!
