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 North Pennines Autumn

Golden SpindlesWelcome to WildWatch volunteers old and new! We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped achieve over almost 20,000 records. This is our third and final year of the project and we should finish in December with well over 20,000 records, so do keep them coming. To view your sightings as part of species distribution in the North Pennines please see WildWatch Wildlife Maps.

Don't forget you can also add photos with your sightings which is an excellent way of aiding verification. If you're new to WildWatch, click on Report Wildlife below to get started, enter your details to create your login ID and start recording!

The three wildlife groups, Weardale, Allen Valleys and Alston Moor are offering their own talks and events this year. Please see the Local Wildlife Groups page for how to get involved with them.
