About the wildlife mapping project
Over the next few years we intend to create a database of Hull's wildlife. To do this we need records of plants and animals from the 120 kilometre squares which cover the urban area of the city along with a small part of the surrounding, more rural, fringe.
We welcome records, particularly lists of species, that can be allocated to a particular kilometre square. Use the map to the right to identify which square your records relate to. The Google Maps image can be zoomed into and the display switched to show aerial photographs - you can even make a street-view virtual tour. When you have identified the correct square, click on it to show the grid coordinates and a description. One or both of these should be included with your records.
For records to be useful in the project they must -
- be allocated to a specific square
- carry a collection date
- be made by a named person
- ... and, most importantly, be correct!
The maps will appear to be sparse at first but new data will be added as the survey progresses. We hope that new records will be added to the website fairly quickly and that the maps for the common species will be a good indication of our progress.
