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.

Young mudshrimps Corophium are growing & moulting right now; a friend once described the piles of cast exoskeletons as 'like snow-drifts' along the shore. Not quite such dramatic nos. here but I was thrilled to find them - the long antennae are clearly seen https://t.co/Fmtf33Duf9 CumbriaBDC photo
