Are you interested in finding out more about wildlife? If so, volunteers are needed to help with national or locally run surveys. Sometimes training is available as part of these but our calendar also has details of other training courses, which may help improve your species identification and survey skills. Use the search facility to choose between Surveys , Training , Events or Meetings , or search by date or keywords.
Our calendar is not exhaustive and we need you to send us details of relevant events to keep it up to date. You may also find details of other biodiversity related events on the Wales Biodiversity Partnership website.

“Responding to the crisis for nature in Wales”
The conference will be held online between November 23-27.
The conference is a free event. Save the date in your diary now – online registration will open later this autumn.
Anyone with an interest in biodiversity and ecosystem action is welcome to attend to discuss, share ideas, learn and collaborate on delivering the Nature Recovery Action Plan in Wales. Key players from the public, private and voluntary sectors will be in attendance, and the conference is delighted to welcome the Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs, Lesley Griffiths. Delegates are welcome to attend the conference every day, or for days or sessions of their choice.
All meetings in 2020 are to be held on the 4th Friday of every month. Field site venues will be discussed at the January meeting. Please contact Jo for further details.
This event will give delegates an opportunity to learn of collecting and identification techniques, old and new, which are being employed by biological recorders in Wales and the value of biological records to current evidence needs.
The event will appeal to biological recorders, students and professionals from organisations working in conservation within Wales.
The afternoon session will consist of a series of classroom and field based workshops together with a parallel discussion session exploring ways of encouraging new recorders and supporting biological recording in the future.
A number of places will be reserved for students. The event presents opportunities to get a taste of practical skills and where students might gain further skills and experience volunteering with organisations in the sector.
