WildWalks has been developed through the LivingMap project, established by The Wildlife Trusts in partnership with the British Trust for Ornithology, as an online wildlife recording tool. We want to encourage the public, whether expert recorders or those with less expertise, to get out and explore our Living Landscapes in an effort to help us map nature as it changes.
