We work hard to protect and expand British woodland and tree cover for people and wildlife. There are lots of ways you can help. One of the most popular activities is surveying the wildlife in our woods.
Recording wildlife at Smithills
At the Smithills Estate, Woodland Trust volunteers have been surveying and recording wildlife since 2016. As of 2018, people can sign up as official wildlife recorders – a volunteer role set up specifically to encourage the recording of local wildlife.
Rob Ball is one of those volunteers. Through this role he has developed a great love of finding and recording all sorts of wild animals, plants and fungi.
