The RHS at Wisley are looking for someone to count slugs. I kid you not.
The RHS and Newcastle University are carrying out a one-year study of slugs in gardens, which involves citizen scientists surveying their gardens and sending slugs for identification to RHS Garden Wisley. This important research project will help develop the understanding of slug species and their abundance, the impact they are having and shape advice for gardeners in the future.
They need someone, a volunteer who will be based at Wisley one day a week, ‘to assist with the day-to-day running of the experiment, particularly the receiving of slugs through the post and processing them for further scientific work’.
I assume by this point the slugs are mostly dead. Details here if, as I say, you’re feeling sluggish.
