For the first quarter of 2021 we are likely to have staff in the office for a maximum of one day a week, Covid regulations permitting; at other times we will be working from home. If you need to visit the office please let us know in advance.

You can get wildlife distribution information - suitable for basic research - free of charge from the National Biodiversity Network. You don't need to make a special request: thousands of species records are available to anyone with a free NBN registration. Click here to go to the NBN Atlas website.
Local Records Centres often get called by people wishing to help stranded or injured wild animals. In fact, we are not animal rescue organisations and can’t take in injured wildlife.
If in doubt about what to do with injured wild animals or birds, the Vale Wildlife Hospital and Rehabilitation Centre website has useful advice, as do the RSPCA, other local animal sanctuaries and some local vets.
Whilst we do keep details of some geological sites, e.g. RIGs sites, the primary geological records centre for the county is based at the Gloucestershire Geology Trust. We recommend contacting them directly for geological records and expert advice.
