Are you interested in finding out more about wildlife? If so, volunteers are needed to help with national or locally run surveys. Sometimes training is available as part of these but our calendar also has details of other training courses, which may help improve your species identification and survey skills. Use the search facility to choose between Surveys , Training , Events or Meetings , or search by date or keywords.
Our calendar is not exhaustive and we need you to send us details of relevant events to keep it up to date. You may also find details of other biodiversity related events on the Wales Biodiversity Partnership website.

Join Jean Matthews, Sam Dyer and Martin Bailey to learn how best to record mammals across North Wales. Many different groups of mammals will be covered, so this is a golden opportunity to learn some useful tips on improving your own mammal records.
The training will consist of two online zoom sessions, with a week in between to practice your skills in your garden or local area. By the end of the sessions we hope you will have confidence to identify some of our common bumblebees and to submit your records.
Please only register if you can attend both sessions and if you are resident in Wales, ideally in the Cofnod area.
