STATE OF NATURE 2016: England

“Citizen science – the involvement of volunteers in gathering valuable and valid environmental data – has really come to prominence in recent years. Among the burgeoning number of projects at a local and national scale, the innovative approach to gathering bat data in Norfolk described below really stands out as an inclusive project making a difference to our knowledge”.
