BioLinks is National Lottery Heritage Fund supported project running until the end of 2022.

The role also supports FSC’s new range of natural history and arts courses for individuals delivered online and in-person, as well as FSC publications. It will also support FSC funded projects with biodiversity content to a range of target audiences.
