Dots on the map: why should we record wildlife?

Online talk with Ryan Clark

How can you make the most of your wildlife sightings? Biological records are the accepted format for wildlife observations and help us to understand and conserve the natural world around us. They underpin evidence-based conservation and tell us how our wildlife is faring. These records are often the product of lists of species seen on a walk, but are incredibly powerful. You do not have to be an expert to make a significant difference. This talk will introduce you to the basics of biological recording and its many uses for wildlife conservation in Britain.

Ryan has been recording wildlife for over 10 years and was the lead on a project to support biological recording in Northamptonshire. He now works in the monitoring and research team for a wildlife conservation charity.
