Species Data

Our database of over 2 million digitised records has been built up over a period of 20 years and includes over 12,000 species across all major taxon groups. Every year we receive records from over 800 Cumbrian recorders, covering most invertebrates, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, invasive species, and more. Our data includes 236 datasets, including those from local natural history groups, individual recorders, local and national recording schemes, Cumbria Wildlife Trust, statutory bodies, and many other contributors.

Additional Species Data

Although we hold a vast number records, our data is not exhaustive and it does not include all species observations in Cumbria. Other local and national recording schemes, as well as the NBN Atlas, may include records that we do not have.

Here is a flavour of what the Nature Recovery Network is all about. During the years ahead, a lot more of this kind of initiative will be possible as new laws and policies lead to changes on the ground. https://t.co/OXF1CNBdnT

We think John Martin's picture of mating Australian flatworms (as shown below) in the UK is unique. Share this post to anyone you think might be able to tell us differently. https://t.co/w8YxEl3eWP CumbriaBDC photo

We got sent some interesting photos from John Martin this week!

Do you know what this species is and why it’s important we know its distribution?

Comment below what you think, and we’ll release a species of the week next week with the answers. https://t.co/I6rVprmjOI
