Submit Your Wildlife Records
Now after all your hard work observing and recording wildlife the next step is to submit them and get them added to our database.
There are a few ways to do that.
Create a free account on iRecord and submit your records through their website or download their app and upload your photos and records while you’re out and about. Using iRecord is great way to record your wildlife sightings because:
- Your records get checked by expert verifiers.
- You can see all of the records and sightings you’ve collected.
- Your records become part of a national database which can help scientific research and policy makers make informed decisions.
- You can sign up and take part in Citizen and Community Science Projects.
- We can access the records from iRecord so you don’t have to submit them twice!
Bumblr helps you identify the six types of Bumblebees in Guernsey, and helps us find out how many there are, and where they are. It’s a citizen science project. We know there are six species of Bumblebee in the Bailiwick– but we need to know more details if we’re going to protect them.
Over the last 5 years The Biological Records Centre has worked with several recording schemes aanddevelopers to launch a range of apps. Visit their website to see the full list and decide which projects you'd like to join!
Dedicated and County Recorders can email us their records spreadsheets.
You can also report invasive species and email us photos that you need help identifying.
30th December 2022 Update Webform temporarily unavailable while we migrate data server.
We have temporarily removed the webform.
This is due to the 27th December 2022 deadline where all local organisations who rely on the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses (EC SCCs) to safely transfer people’s data outside of the Bailiwick will have to ensure they are using the updated Standard Contractual Clauses, published in June 2021.
We are in the process of moving our data server from the USA to EU servers to ensure we are compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This is taking longer than expected due to factors outside the Records Centre’s control, so to ensure we protect your personal data we have removed the webform until the server migration is completed.
