WSBRC is 40 years old Wiltshire and Swindon Biological Records Centre

It's WSBRC's 40th Anniversary!



From recording cards and filing cabinets to online recording and databases WSBRC has now been the custodian of Wiltshire’s wildlife records for 40 years.

To celebrate this we are planning a fun-filled year of recording challenges and events for new and experienced recorders alike and we hope you will get involved.

Volunteer with us! - We have over one and a half million species records on our main database, and receive over a hundred thousand records from volunteer recorders each year, with records being received on a daily basis.

The data varies from single records of a species seen in a local park to full site surveys detailing hundreds of sightings. Volunteers are needed to help with the processing of this data.
