iRecord allows all of Wytham`s visitors to record any species of insect, bird, plant or mammal found in the Woods. This is an invaluable resource for researchers and ecologists who are trying to conserve species. Historical data is already being inputted.

Even though Wytham is probably the most studied woodland in the UK, there are still many things we don’t know about the plants and animals that live there.

The iRecord smartphone app makes it easy for you to tell us about the wildlife you see at Wytham. The data can then be collated, checked by experts and made available to scientists and decision-makers. Ultimately your sightings will help us understand and protect our natural environment more effectively.
