Welcome to the Somerset wildlife database.
By entering your sightings you are directly contributing to protecting wildlife in Somerset. SERC works with partners all across Somerset ensuring sightings are passed to those who need this information, which in turn helps to protect wildlife by providing decision-makers with up to date knowledge on the State of Nature in Somerset.
Please wait while the database window refreshes – this may take a few seconds.
