This spring, the National Forum for Biological Recording (NFBR) will be exploring ‘Outside the Honeypot: Wildlife recording in the urban world’, with a two-day virtual conference showcasing some fantastic projects and initiatives about wildlife recording in habitats that we tend to think of as reserved for humans.
A conference for everyone… naturalists, volunteers and professionals
The NFBR is the independent voice of Biological Recording in the UK, and each year they host a conference to share biological recording stories and learning with sector professionals and volunteer recorders.
NFBR conferences enable delegate to find out what biological recording projects are taking place (Gary Hedges will update delegates on the fantastic Tanyptera Project in the North West of England), how you can get involved (such as the UK Pollinator Monitoring Scheme that Martin Harvey will be talking about) and what biological records are telling us about the state of the UK’s wildlife (Liam Olds will report on wildlife on colliery sites).
These conferences are also a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and share our various passions for both the well-studied groups (such as in Dawn Balmer’s talk in urban bird recording) and the under-appreciated groups (Imogen Cavadino will challenge delegates to appreciate our garden slugs more in her talk about the research that she’s currently undertaking).
The NFBR conference costs just £5 to attend. To book your place, please visit the Field Studies Council website.
