Woodlice have been an area of study and a very popular outreach event for many years, gaining the support of many people including the author and presenter of Springwatch, Chris Packham, a fellow woodlice enthusiast. Talks, displays and activities have been provided for many groups and public events as well as providing support and information for those with a concern over woodlice in their home and for children and students studying isopods.

More detailed information on woodlice is available as a PDF for you to download below and do contact us for outreach or any queries.
