Huscote Bioblitz

You can help to create official data for the area of Huscote by observing and reporting on what you see, even if you’re not sure what it is! This is simple and easy to do, you can spend as much time as you wish and concentrate on the wildlife, habitats and plants that are of interest for you – or simply remember to photograph anything you see when you are in the area generally!

A BioBlitz is an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area. A Huscote Bioblitz has been established that anyone can contribute to in order to build up accurate data that can be used to protect the wildlife and habitat in the future!

The area of Huscote, the fields around Huscote Farm provides natural habitat for wildlife and birds; we see the wildlife on a regular basis but there is little officially recorded data on biodiversity or any wildlife records for the area due to the location.

What do you actually need to do:

  • Go to iNaturalist Website or download their FREE app
  • Create account
  • When you see ANY living thing from plants to wildlife, take a picture are clear as possible
  • Add your picture on iNaturalist and pinpoint on map, if you don’t know the name, don’t worry, others will help ID!

For those more confident, or with more time to spend on identifying, please record directly to iRecord

Biodiversity is the variety of plant and animal life. Surveying and recording biodiversity can provide valuable information about habitats, plants, animals and natural processes in an area. Information such as the presence of species and habitats, the condition of habitats and the size of wildlife populations can be useful to Identify protected areas and protected species and ensure that they are not adversely affected by human actions.
