Outdoors lovers in Sheffield and Rotherham are being encouraged to record sightings of local wildlife in support of Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust’s conservation efforts.
WildWalks is a new online recording tool, established by the wildlife trust in partnership with the British Trust for Ornithology.
It allows nature lovers to log wildlife sightings and map records of plants and animals across the trust’s conservation areas.
To log a sighting log on to www.wildlifetrusts.org/wildwalks and chose from 300 locations.
Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust will use the information to develop a better idea of how wildlife is responding to conservation work.
A mobile version is planned for later this year.
