Record Wildlife

If you have seen a notable species in the Yorkshire area, have a list of your sightings from one of our reserves, or want to help with some of our surveys, we’d love to hear from you.

The data you collect could help us to inform our decision making, educate the community and carry out research on important species and habitats. Sightings of protected species from the Yorkshire area also help inform how our planning team respond to proposed developments.

All sightings, and any questions you have about recording wildlife, can be sent to

If you want to contribute even further to our recording work and spot more exciting wildlife, you can visit our volunteering page to find out about roles available.

For information on species records from outside of our reserves, please contact your local records centre - information below.
