Find Wildlife From Home Survey

 (Wheatear by Graham Ainge, 2021) 

We need your help to survey the diversity and abundance of wildlife and plants, on the Manhood Peninsula  . It’s important to record this information, as it allows us to monitor the impact of climate change and local developments on our environment. We welcome records of all local wildlife and plants, not just endangered species.

Your records will build an up-to-date database of information that can be shared with local organisations and government bodies, and this data will also be used by our projects to guide our future conservation work. Records submitted for this survey are always shared with the National Biological Records Centre (BRC).

How to submit your wildlife sightings

Submit your wildlife records online by clicking on the button below. This survey is hosted by Microsoft Forms and can be completed on a desktop or a mobile device for recording on the go!
