18) Wildlife Sightings/Survey's – Family Activity

Wildlife is all around us and can be a joy to watch. We need to preserve this great natural asset, yet without recording the species around us, we may not be aware of the declines in populations, or even complete losses or new arrivals. Take part in the surveys and record the wildlife around you on days out. A good way to submit your records is to use the Living Record on-line recording system for Dorset.
