Additional Information: 

ERIC North East is the Environmental Records Centre for the North East of England. By collecting wildlife records from across the North East of England we can build up a detailed picture of species and habitats within our region. Importantly these data are then made available to a wide range of people including biodiversity professionals, local authorities and voluntary wildlife recorders who can use the information to ensure effective decision making regarding the region’s biodiversity. This is only possible due to the data we receive from wildlife recorders, including members of the public.
