Identifying wildlife is so much fun and great for our health and wellbeing. Understanding different species is also crucial for education and biodiversity projects. 

Wildlife guides from the Field Studies Council are used by hundreds of thousands of people each year. Here are some ideas of what you can do, either on your own or with your family, friends, colleagues, or community group.
