Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

Biodiversity Training Project

This 5 year project developed biological identification and recording amongst volunteers in Shropshire and the wider region.

The Biodiversity Training Project is a 5 year scheme to enable, enhance and promote biological recording amongst volunteers in Shropshire and the wider region.

The project aims to encourage people to develop and progress their identification and recording skills, in order to better understand our natural heritage, whilst integrating ideas of sustainability and the bigger picture. This will be done by working with a wide range of volunteer groups, recording societies, conservation organisations and individuals with training projects focussing upon Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) habitats. These will include the Meres and Mosses of North Shropshire, the heather moorlands of the Shropshire Hills, the Ironbridge woodlands, as well as grassland and riparian habitats around the region.
