A free exhibition showcasing photos of local wildlife has opened at the Link Gallery at Jersey Museum and Art Gallery.

The display, which runs until 29 January, celebrates the diversity of wildlife found on the island. The photos show a range of species spotted by volunteers of the Jersey Biodiversity Centre, including sightings of grass snake, green lizard and grey seal.

Each photo is accompanied by details of the volunteer, the species name, and the date and location the wildlife was spotted.

Volunteers help the Jersey Biodiversity Centre to collect records of wildlife, which are vital for safeguarding the island’s biodiversity. The records, which date back to the 1800s, are shared with local and international conservation groups. The centre now holds over 420,000 biological records, representing over 8,000 species.

Each month, the Link Gallery features a new exhibition, providing local artists with a central space in St Helier to showcase their work.

The gallery is open daily from 10am to 4pm.
