In the fourth month of our Find Wildlife From Home Survey, we surpassed 200 submissions! Some of these sightings were recorded at FLOW project improved wetland sites, by volunteers working independently. Thank you to those who have already signed up to return to surveying wildlife for the FLOW project, your time and efforts are really appreciated!
