New Project! Cold-blooded and Spineless

The North Pennines AONB Partnership's new five year biological recording project has now started. Cold-blooded and Spineless will celebrate invertebrates in the North Pennines and help inspire people to learn about and identify, small but very important creatures in our landscape. Find out more about the project and take part in the volunteer identification skills training events in 2015.

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. We have provided some information on how your data is used.
