Welcome to the Cumbria Biodiversity Data Centre

Special Surveys and Calls for Records

Whilst we always welcome records of any and all species, we also put out calls of records for particular species and species groups to learn more about their distributions in the county, or particular areas or sites to focus on. These are highlighted here and currently include tree bumblebeemacro moth distribution and waxcaps.

Other Cumbrian recording surveys

Wildwatch North Pennines

This recording project for the area covered by the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty aims to increase biological recording in the North Pennines. All records sent to Wildwatch will be shared with CBDC.

Cumbria Freshwater Invasive Non-native Species Initiative

Records of non-native invasive species should be sent first to this initiative, so action can be taken if required. This can also be done via the plant tracker phone app. These records will be shared with CBDC.
