Wildlife

Gloucestershire is a wild and wonderful place just waiting for you to discover. Use the NEW A-Z species directory and learn more about hundreds of British species, from adders to the zebra spider and everything in between!

If you have any sightings you wish to share then let us know on the sightings page, here you can record anything from hedgehogs in your garden to the elusive otter. Information you give us, helps us to understand and ultimately conserve our wildlife.

We also have a NEW wildlife advice section from wildlife gardening to composting, how you can make a difference. You may want specialist information, in which case our ecology experts can help with anything from bat surveys to habitat advice.
