All wildlife sightings are important and we encourage everyone to submit their records. We are interested in all records, from rarer species to help aid conservation efforts to the more widespread species. All records can be useful for mapping the distributions of species both locally and nationally, understanding species’ ecology, and for detecting trends.
In order to create a useful record that we are able to import into our database, please make sure that the following essential bits of information are included when recording wildlife:
Submit your records
SxBRC shares data with almost all of the recording groups in Sussex, so if you send your records to them we will, in due course and after they have been verified, get them too. Likewise, if you send your records to us we will pass them to the recording groups for verification and input into their datasets. This relationship helps ensure that the records we hold are as accurate as possible
The best way to send us records is via iRecord which is a free, easy-to-use online recording website. Records that you enter into iRecord are immediately available for us to download. What's more, they're available to view by the wider community through the site, making it an ideal way to share and explore wildlife sightings.
Alternatives to iRecordIf you prefer not to use an online recording tool there are a number of alternatives you can choose from:
If you have records in a format not mentioned above, please contact us to discuss as we will most probably be able to work out a solution.
