Mission Statement

BMIG mission statement 2021

The British Myriapod and Isopod Group (BMIG) aims to improve awareness and knowledge of centipedes, millipedes and other Myriapoda, woodlice, waterlice and intertidal Isopoda and related species in Britain and Ireland.
BMIG works with amateurs and professionals to ensure that reliable information about the species, their biology, habitats, ecology and distribution, is collected and made available.
BMIG aims to enable accurate identifications, to publish distribution information, to carry out research, and to encourage interest in these groups and their conservation. This is promoted through social media and its website, the on-line newsletter and journal and field meetings, which are open to anyone.
