OPAL Earthworm Identification Guide appears in Farming is Magic film

The Farming is Magic film collection has released a new film, "Wonder of Worms" that refers to the OPAL Earthworm Identification Guide.

The film can be viewed here: http://www.farmingismagic.co.uk/films/wonder-of-worms/

The Farming is Magic blog also highlights OPAL's Key to Common British Earthworms, and provides some tips on how to explain the wonders of earthworms to farm visitors as well as the benefits of citizen science.   

Earthworms are extremely important and play a vital role in improving soil structure and drainage as well as creating nutrient-rich castings, which all contribute to crop production. You can help us improve our knowledge of earthworms and the soil they live in by participating in the OPAL Soil and Earthworm Survey. To familiarise yourself with the common British earthworms, click here to view our gallery of earthworm images along with a summary of their characteristics, what they eat and where they live. 

You can also check out our fun online game, Earthworm Frenzy, made available in the Kids Zone.
