Get involved in our flatworm survey
We are concerned about the invasion of non-native flatworms in the UK, and we need your help to find out just how far they have spread.
Please get involved in our backyard flatworm survey – it is easy to do, and only takes 10 minutes!
How to get involved
Spend 10 minutes searching for flatworms in a nearby outdoor space – it could be your back garden, or somewhere you visit during your daily exercise. Look in damp, dark places such as under wood, stones and plastic, and underneath plant pots.
If you find a flatworm please take a picture.
Then please answer our questions below to send us your photo and information on your survey. Please complete the questions whether you have found a flatworm or not – we are interested to know where flatworms aren’t as well as where they are.
