Welcome to our online recording system, Nature Counts.
This page enables you to submit your wildlife sightings to us, to help us make better, more evidence based conservation choices on our nature reserves and beyond, informing our Living Landscapes strategy around Sheffield and Rotherham.
This information will help us to get a clearer representation of how our local flora and fauna are thriving or where they are in decline. The data collected will also feed into the National Biodiversity Network’s database, the NBN Atlas, meaning your records can be used by ecologists and scientists across the country to inform national policy decisions about nature and the environment, and UK-wide assessments of biodiversity.
Whether you’ve seen something common or rare, in one of our nature reserves or elsewhere within Sheffield & Rotherham, let us know. All species records are welcome. Submit your records to us above!
