WildWatch North Pennines a project to encourage and help you to record wildlife in and around the North Pennines AONB, helping us to conserve biodiversity. Scroll down for links.
We work closely with the regional record centres, local recording groups, Wildlife Trusts and many others to ensure records are verified and then put to good use. All records are shared with the Cumbria Biodiversity Data Centre and ERIC North East.
WildWatch Winter Gatherings
Thank you to everyone who supported the WildWatch Winter Gatherings. Following each event we took the first steps in creating three new wildlife groups, Weardale, Allen valleys and South Tyne. We were delighted with the interest and support shown for the wildlife groups and each new group now has an interim committe of volunteers to coordinate peoples ideas and organise the first few events.
The commitees are meeting over December and January and early ideas and events will be publicised on this web site and circulated by email to WildWatch volunteers who have expressed a desire to be kept in touch. The AONB Partnership is delighted to be able to support these new wildlife groups, their activity contributing to the important work of recording and conserving our North Pennines wildlife.
