Wildlife Recording

Wild Roseland is encouraging people to record what they observe across the peninsula as one way of monitoring the range and health of our local species. The Environmental Records Centre (ERCCIS, based at the Cornwall Wildlife Trust) maintains important records of the occurrence of flora and fauna across Cornwall and its coastline - a vital resource for monitoring species. They rely on volunteers to submit records and sightings of species - common and rare, and Wild Roseland can make an important contribution to this.
ORKS (Online Recording Kernow and Scilly) is the wildlife recording website run by ERCCIS. It is designed to make it as quick and easy as possible to submit, store and share wildlife records. ERCCIS encourages anyone to submit wildlife records, whatever their experience and no matter how common or widespread the species. Your contributions will help improve our understanding of the natural history of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, as well as to be used in decision-making, education, research and other public benefit purposes.
