Your views are needed - FSC BioLinks Survey

Please help Keiron Brown from the Field Studies Council with his next biological recording project?

The ultimate goal of the project is to improve the number of records created for 'difficult-to-identify' data deficient species. This will be achieved through the provision of biodiversity training courses, production of resources and working alongside existing networks (such as recording schemes/societies, training providers, LERCs, collections managers and land managers).

In order to ensure the project is as successful as possible (and achieves the funding) he is running a series of public consultations and an online survey to gather as much evidence from a wide range of consultees. Further down the line he will be contacting the organisations that will fall within the BioLinks project area to iron out the detail. The project area will be informed by the consultation phase but will include Shropshire in the West Midlands and London in the South East (and potentially parts of Surrey, Buckinghamshire and possibly Berkshire). He is more than happy to receive responses from outside of these areas as the input may still be useful and he will be publishing the results at the end of the development phase of the project (making this report available under a creative commons licence so that other biodiversity organisations can make use of the findings for the work).
