The Project

BioLinks is all about invertebrates.  Invertebrates provide us with many useful ecosystem services which we cannot survive without but their numbers are declining. Few people know how to identify or record invertebrates meaning there is a lack of records, making it difficult for conservationists to address these declines. This project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, teaches people how to identify and record invertebrates by providing subsidised training courses, learning opportunities and digital tools to generate more records.
