The Monmouthshire Local Nature Partnership is newly reformed and developing links across the county to celebrate, conserve and enhance our unique and rich habitat, and bring people together to share best practice and resources to maximise benefits for people and wildlife.
Casual sightings of just about any wildlife can be valuable if you record and report them. A simple way to do this is using SEWBReC on-line recording system SEWBReCORD or by downloading the LERC Wales App to your mobile device.
Records help to save wildlife and wildlife habitats that make up our shared ecosystem.
