Can you help to put wildlife on the map?
Somerset Wildlife Trust has a great way for you to get even more out of your walks on the wild side and help the Trust at the same time.
The WildWalks initiative includes an online wildlife recording tool (developed in partnership with the British Trust for Ornithology) that will allow you to log records of plants and animals that you come across on your walk. The aim for us is to develop a better understanding of the impact that our landscape scale conservation work has and how various habitats change and evolve so we can protect it better. And the best way for us to understand this sometimes is to get some help from the people that visit it and enjoy it the most. So whether you whether you have little or lots of recording expertise you can really help. And that’s you.
If you are interested in undertaking a WildWalk please register at www.livingmap.org.uk. Once registered simply take one of our Wild Walks and get recording! You can even set up your own walks.
To help users get a feeling for the system we have produced these video demonstrations:
