SBRC’s function is to provide a secure archive for the wildlife and biodiversity records in Sheffield. SBRC delivers a public records service for education, research and conservation and offers a fee-paying bespoke service to commercial customers such as environmental consultancies. Biological records are an extremely valuable resource. Accurate information about the distribution of species and habitats, including those which are legally protected, rare or threatened are required by organisations in the public and private sector whose actions affect the environment.
How to get involved
You can contribute to recording Sheffield’s wildlife and your local records centre. Without current contributions our archive would become historical and would not catalogue recent changes, which help to inform current conservation. We rely on new records.
To add your record to the database please include the following:
which species was seen – from bats to fungi, badgers to butterflies and plants (please give us the species name or you can send a photograph for identification)
where it was seen (a grid reference or a post code)
when it was seen (day/month/year)
who saw it (who saw the species and their contact details)
comments (optional, any notable behaviour observed, or surveying methods used for example)
