Did you know that you can use your smart phone to contribute to our national wildlife records? The iNaturalist app is a free way to upload what you see out and about, benefitting national databases and improving the wildlife records for your local area. This is important for so many reasons and the Galloway & Southern Ayrshire Biosphere team are leading the charge, with six key species to focus on. Find out more about the ‘Biosphere’s Most Wanted’ initiative and how you can contribute at a short and fun event on 4th of February in Dalry Town Hall.

The ‘Biosphere’s Most Wanted’ project is trying to empower local communities to use the iNaturalist app to bolster knowledge of local wildlife. Six species have been selected for initial focus - Wych Elm, Grayling Butterfly, Red Squirrel, Nursehound, Adder & Swift – selected for their ease of identification and to showcase the value communities & individuals can have in improving local distribution knowledge. The records and knowledge are a key driving force behind subsequent conservation action.

This free event is part of the Fantastic Forest Festival from the Galloway Glens and its partners.
