The UK’s 15 National Parks have established Look Wild so that the general public visiting National Parks can map and record the different species of plants and animals they see. This growing database will help the National Parks in their collective effort to enhance these precious landscapes and support strong bio-diverse ecosystems.

The Look Wild project is fun and accessible for everyone: from someone who is new to identifying plants and animals to the keen naturalist who is keeping an eye out for rare or unusual species. Everyone will learn more about what they are seeing and contribute to the scientific research. The app the project runs on can be used anywhere – from doorstep to wilderness – so people can enjoy learning about the natural world around them whether they’re walking to the local shop or hiking in the Cheviots.
