Current Projects

Cold Blooded and Spineless This project is training new volunteers to identify and record a range of invertebrate, amphibian and reptiles species in the North Pennines AONB. CBDC will help produce the maps of these records and identify areas of invertebrate significance.
Eycott Hill Nature Reserve CBDC supported the 2016 Eycott Bioblitz and has run training courses for volunteers new to biological recording.
Rusland Horizons CBDC has fully digitised the 1988 Phase 1 habitat Survey for the Rusland Horizons Project Area. We are currently analysing more recent surveys and data to bring the map up to date. Read more
