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.
