Stag beetles are the largest ground living beetle in the UK and are only found in five places in Gloucestershire.

Males are easily recognisable by their impressive antlers. Stag beetles live in dead wood where their larvae can spend up to seven years growing to their full size.

We help local communities build stag beetle hotels using old wood and gives them the knowledge they need to monitor these amazing insects.
