Species Recording

One of the greatest asset to learning about the species which live in the Solent are our volunteer recorders.  The Solent is rich in natural heritage and has a long tradition of biological recording by both volunteers and professional staff.

The Hampshire and Wight Wildlife Trust (HWWT) run two excellent programmes that record species and habitats both above and below water. Shoresearch is the seashore recording and surveying project, in which volunteers identify and record what they find on the shore. Seasearch is a national project coordinated by the Marine Conservation Society that the HWWT have been running locally for several years in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Please visit the Solent Forum's metadatabase, Solent Disc, for more information on species data in the Solent.
