Greater Manchester Local Record Centre: Wildlife Recording in Greater Manchester
Despite concerted conservationefforts, the numbers of many wildlife species are still falling, which is why the GM Record Centre need to know where different wildlife species can still be found, in order to protect them. Likewise, over the coming years climate change may have a big impact on the numbers of certain species and their distributions. Species which are common today may no longer be so in twenty years time. Therefore it is important to know where animals and plants are found today, so that in a few years time we can identify changes in their populations and distributions as they occur and take steps to minimise any declines. This is why the GM Record Centre need your help to record different species and note any changes.
All the wildlife records submitted will be used to map the current distributions of species and identify changes as they occur.RODiS is an easy to use online recording system ideal for all levels of recorder, from beginner to experienced. There are training sessions in the use of the online recording system listed here or have a look at the recording system. Back to the Top
