Case Studies

Since 2010, CBDC has worked on a range of important and influential projects linked to wildlife and natural history, both in Cumbria and around the United Kingdom. You can find a selection of our favourite and most recent projects below.

We offer a range of data, mapping, and training services and take on projects of any size. For more information, please visit our Services section. If you that think CBDC can help you with a project and you’d like to know more, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Income from our paid services allows us to continue charitably supporting hundreds of local volunteers in Cumbria.

Public Engagement

CBDC’s knowledge, skills and resources, coupled with our network of natural historians, are ideal for public engagement events. We get involved in bioblitzes and family fun days across Cumbria.

Note:
Project coming soon.

Solway Nature Networks

To boost wildlife records on the Solway coast and plains, CBDC recruited new volunteers via a series of recording walks and identification training sessions, who collected over 1,000 records in one year.

Note:
Project coming soon.

Please contact us if you’re interested in working with CBDC.

@SocketedAxes @TullieHouse The Tullie Secret Garden has a juvenile or two "stranded" every year. It's parent will visit it and it will be OK. They are very noisy and the call is very poignant so it will tug at your heart strings!

Finally! While the rest of the UK flowering season is well under way, it's taken until yesterday to see my first Early Purple Orchid of 2021 in #Shetland. Growing in a serpentine fell field, they're always tiny, but share their home with other special plants, like Moss Campion. https://t.co/GYBQp2nHwZ CumbriaBDC photo
