Recording Wildlife

Information about Cumbria’s wildlife, habitats and geology have been given to Tullie House Museum for over 100 years.  The information from this collection of specimens and records is used by: national and local organisations to help with policy and planning; researchers and students; biological recorders and the public.  By recording in Cumbria you will help continue this tradition and important work.
