Social Media Policy

This policy sets out how we use Social Media, and will tell you what you can expect from us if you follow Bells for Biodiversity’s official accounts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Bells for Biodiversity’s social media accounts are managed by the team. We do not use any automation to post content, such as tools that generate tweets from RSS feeds. If you follow us, you can generally expect no more than 10 tweets or posts per day at this time, usually less, covering the following:

  • alerts about new content relating to the Bells for Biodiversity initiative (news, publications, opening social media channels, publicity campaigns, etc)
  • alerts about new content relating to conservation projects supported by Bells for Biodiversity.
  • occasional live coverage of events


We follow organisations and public individuals which share or represent our interests as a conservation group. They include (but are not exclusively limited to) other conservation groups, scientists and non-for-profit organisations which we support. We do not automatically follow back new followers. Due to resources, we infrequently review our follower list. Being followed back does not imply endorsement of any kind.


We will update and monitor our social media accounts during office hours, Monday to Friday. Social media platforms may occasionally be unavailable and we accept no responsibility for lack of service due to third party downtime.

@Replies, Direct Messages, Comments

We welcome feedback from all our followers and endeavour to join the conversation where possible. However, we are not able to reply individually to all the messages we receive. We do not engage on issues of party politics or answer questions which may infringe our team’s personal privacy.
