Recording wildlife

Share this article

CAMBRIDGESHIRE and Peterborough Environmental Records Centre is looking for volunteers in the Fenland area to get involved with a “Recording wildlife near you” project.

There is a lack of recorded wildlife data, particularly in the Fenland district, and this is where the organisation needs readers’ help.

Jane Andrews-Gauvain, the biodiversity outreach officer, said: “We are seeking people who want to learn about and record wildlife in their area. Whether a keen walker, angler, or just a person who enjoys spotting wildlife in your garden, we want to hear from them.

“Equally we would love to hear from any landowner who would like to join in with the project, or who would allow access to their land just for the above purpose, even if they do not wish to survey.

“We are very excited by the potential of this project and hope that it will enable communities to come together, while at the same time, raising the profile of local wildlife and generating new records of species and plants of interest.”
