Reporting wildlife sightings
All information is valuable to someone, especially in the marine environment where there are fewer people to see what is out there. Opportunistic sightings really help to build up a picture of a plant or animal’s distribution or seasonality. The following links should help you to identify the best recipient for your information. If you have any doubts about who to get in touch with, just contact the SAC Officer.
With all wildlife sightings, remember to report who you are, what you saw, where (as accurately as possible) and when (the time of day is useful too).
• Discussions and sightings relating to all wildlife in Pembrokeshire can be posted on the Pembrokeshire Wildlife Sightings blog. If you’re not sure what you’re looking at you can use the i-spot website to get help identifying it then submit a record onto the blog.
• Send records to the West Wales Biodiversity Information Centre.
• Send coastal otter sightings direct to the SAC Officer who will pass the information on to the County Mammal Recorder and Otter Consultancy. Alternatively, you can fill in the otter postcard (best for inland or river sightings).
