Be our eyes on the ground
The more we understand about species, their behaviour and how populations are dispersed across the county, the better equipped we are to ensure that we protect them for the future. We need more people taking notice of what they see - whether that's in their own home patch, local green space, or in their travels around the county. Citizen science activities and projects are a great way to learn more about our wonderful wildlife, at the same time as help us to protect it. Check out some ideas below and get involved!
The Great Somerset Wildlife Count
The Great Somerset Wildlife Count will help us ensure that we don't miss important wildlife trends, and can identify ways to protect species before we lose them forever. With you as our eyes and ears on the ground, collecting and feeding in important wildlife data and information, we'll know where we need to create even stronger links in our county-wide nature recovery network.
Join in and together we can help make nature count!
