Aderyn :: Submit a Record

The Welsh LERCs welcome wildlife records from all sources and of all species. The data submitted to the four LERCs are used for a variety of purposes, from informing local planning decisions to contributing to national and international environmental research. A large proportion of our data comes from volunteer wildlife recorders, who offer an incredibly important insight into species distribution across Wales.

We are therefore always delighted to receive data from local wildlife recorders, and each LERC has their own online recording tool for this purpose. Please click on the links below to be taken to the relevant recording page. If you are unsure which LERC you live in, please use the Find Your Local Environmental Records Centre tool on the LERC Wales website.

If you have a large amount of data, or prefer to submit records in another format, please contact the relevant LERC to decide the best method of submission. Alternative methods include Excel, MapMate and paper formats.
