On Thursday evening, 6th May at 7:30, Andrew Graham will be giving the last of our online Zoom talks, ‘Everyone Can Be a Wildlife Recorder’ describing how recording the world around us helps us to understand it, and how you too can contribute.
When you hear or read that a species of bird or butterfly, animal or plant has declined by X% or Y% percent over the last number of years, do you sometimes wonder "how do they know that?". Much of what we know about changes going on in our environment is derived from millions of records collected over decades, mostly by ordinary people with an interest in nature, like us.
Andrew will describe how the recording systems developed and how they work, how you can access some of the results, and how anyone, with a little time and knowledge, can contribute.
