Recording Wildlife

Recording wildlife is a crucial step in protecting species and habitats.

Why Record Wildlife?

Wildlife records are used locally to inform planning applications and can play a vital role in highlighting the biological history of a site.

When a site is proposed for development, wildlife records are used both by ecological consultancies and the local planning authority.
