INTRODUCTION

 

The Wildlife Sightings Database provides a record of wildlife sightings at Kew and Wakehurst Place and a simple means of entering new observations.   Recent sightings are displayed for one month and then archived.  All records since the database was developed (April 1998) can be accessed by site and type of organism.

 

This information has been gathered by staff and volunteers, who record sightings and input data.  If you would like to help with recording or data input please contact the co-ordinator below:

 

Observations can be made at Kew and Wakehurst place throughout opening hours.

 

Access to the Loder Valley Nature Reserve is limited to 50 visitors per day.  Please telephone  - 01 444 894067 for further information. The reserve is open from 10am to gardens closing time, which varies throughout the year.
