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.
Our sister LERC in south Wales is having their Recorders' Forum on Saturday. Packed full of interesting online talks this is well-worth attending. Book via their Eventbrite link.
Cofnod have teamed up with Snowdonia National Park, Wales' largest Dark Skies Reserve, to provide a course on the sort of wildlife you're likely to see at night. The Course will be delivered by Dani Robertson, Snowdonia National Park and the North Wales' AONB's Dark Skies Officer, and will focus on the wildlife you might see at night and how to see them. This is a free course and will be delivered online using Zoom on 4th February 2021. Booking is essential.
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.
