An important aspect of Black to Green is to capture valuable information about wildlife populations and habitats across the Heart of the Forest. These records are then gathered together to inform conservation management, to help improve and sustain the area’s natural heritage. We want to involve as many people as possible in this process so are providing training in species identification and ecological survey skills. Anyone can take part in these opportunities, you do not need to have any prior experience in wildlife recording. And to effectively record species across the Heart of the Forest we have also teamed up with NatureSpot, an online recording facility which now has dedicated Heart of the Forest pages.
