LERC Wales Runners-up for NBN Lynne Farrell Wildlife Recording Group Award

Adam Rowe (SEWBReC) and Roy Tapping (Cofnod) attended the award ceremony on behalf of LERC Wales at the National Biodiversity Network (NBN) Conference on the 21st November. They were presented with a certificate as runners-up, a Moth ID book and a £100 to spend on a wildlife recording project of their choice.

LERC Wales was nominated as a leading example of 4 LERCs working together to develop joint software to aid capturing and access to wildlife information. The technical development of LERC Wales bi-lingual recording and reporting tools that enable ‘on the go’ recording through the LERC Wales App, plus access to species, site and habitat data to a range of users through Aderyn, is at the fore-front of UK LERCs and NBN member organisations across the UK.

It was agreed that the £100 award can be used in the BIS area as the BIS manager led the nomination. BIS would like to use this award for wildlife recording projects in BIS area. If you have such a project which would benefit from additional funding eg. atlas publication or recording equipment please contact
