Why iRecord? A virtual symposium on the 21st April

This virtual event will showcase some of the fantastic initiatives collating data gathered by volunteer biological recorders and delve into what the data is telling us about UK wildlife and how you can get involved.

Learn about how local groups are improving our understanding of their patch and how a national recording scheme is pulling together data from across the UK to better understand the species that they cover.
