Wednesday 20th July 2011: Wildlife Recording with West Yorkshire Ecology

Evie Bell from the West Yorkshire Ecology Service delivered a presentation to a group of 7 people at the YMCA this evening. The topic was the local ecological records that are collected and collated by the service for the West Yorkshire authorities. We were informed how we could contribute to the record database. And how the Service use the data that store to protect threatened habitats. It was interesting to discover that the records for fauna in the district are not as thorough as for flora. We plan to add to the data records over the forthcoming Wildlife Wanders programme.
