Norfolk’s Environmental Records Centre is looking for new volunteers to help record the biodiversity of Breckland - an internationally important hotspot for rare wildlife.

The ‘Wildlife Recorders of Tomorrow’ project, which is part of the Heritage Lottery supported ‘Breaking New Ground Landscape Partnership Scheme’, will provide wide-scale monitoring of wildlife in the area crucial to identifying underlying changes in biodiversity.

The project is looking for volunteers, from beginners to the seasoned surveyor.

Sam Neal, from Norfolk Biodiversity Information Service (NBIS), said: “All you need is enthusiasm.
“We can provide training in species identification, or you may just want to tell us what you’ve seen whilst out walking in the area.”

To find out more please register you interest by email nbis@norfolk.gov.uk or visit the NBIS stand at the Charles Burrell Centre Open Day in Thetford on Sunday, September 6.
