If you are concerned about whether to take part in surveys during the COVID-19 outbreak, please check the current government guidelines to help you decide if it is appropriate and safe for you to do so.
Thank you.


Regularly surveying species and wild places is the only way we can tell if conservation work is needed or working. And you're important in helping us find out. 

In the current circumstances we aren’t asking people to go outside of their homes to survey. You can find the latest Government advice  regarding essential travel here. 

Wildlife spotting isn’t difficult, it just takes eagle eyes and careful recording. You don’t have to be an expert and the more help we have the better. Your data will make a real difference to wildlife conservation.

If you live in the UK please volunteer some time to take part in one of our surveys listed below.

The records you send us are invaluable for saving species. We upload our data to the national databank for biodiversity each year, the NBN Atlas, and make the records accessible to all Local Records Centres. This allows other people to use the information to guide conservation action. This information will NEVER include your contact details.
