Community Wildlife Mapping in Somerset

4th May 2022 @ 19:00 - 21:00

People round a table in a field

Join us for a special Somerset wide event. Come along to find out how your local community can utilise community mapping and get involved.

Community wildlife mapping enables people to take note of the wildlife in their local area and use this information to the inform the actions they take locally for natures recovery. It’s really important that we monitor and understand changes in both the diversity (the variety) of species and the abundance (the quantity) of wildlife species we have across the county. This in turn helps us track the health of the ecosystems that exist to support them (and us), which are coming under increasing pressure.

SERC currently holds over three million species records but most of these are for protected or rare species within nature reserves and there is a gap in our knowledge about more ‘common’ species. We also have far fewer records for areas of farmland and within villages and towns. Community Wildlife Mapping is an important tool to help us all work together for wildlife and our local communities.

Join this informative evening to find out more about how community mapping can contribute to the nature recovery network across Somerset and how communities are already putting this important tool to good use.
