We welcome wildlife records from schools and colleges across Merseyside and value the contribution that this sector of education can make to recording wildlife in the local area.
The college campus; school grounds; local nature reserves and green spaces provide excellent outdoor science laboratories. These sites allow 16 – 19 year olds the opportunity to gain valuable field studies experience and develop skills in biological recording.
Connection with the natural environment helps to raise awareness about the local species and habitats within the immediate vicinity and can offer opportunities for community and voluntary projects.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you're currently recording species and habitats on campus or you're interested in involving your students in recording wildlife in your local area.
Local & National Surveys
There is a wealth of ongoing activity at both the local level and nationally. These great opportunities can help new and budding naturalists to engage with and explore the environment while learning and testing new knowledge and field skills. National surveys can be superb ways to get involved with interesting activities while contributing to a high profile project while local specialist groups can offer an intereactive environment full of like minded naturalists always willing to help and guide.
Please contact us for more information on where to start or how to get involved.
