COVID-19

SEWBReC is continuing to function as normal during the COVID-19 lockdown. All staff are working from home, and we are maintaining our commercial enquiry, development control and other services.

Please note, our office phone is currently unmanned, so please email in the first instance if you need to get in touch.

We have collated a list of home based wildlife resources to help people stay connected with nature.

We do not advocate unnecessary travel for recording purposes during this time of crisis. We still encourage you to keep recording, but please do so in a safe, socially distant and local manner, e.g. concentrating on your own garden.

 

South East Wales Biodiversity Records Centre (SEWBReC) is the centre for the collation, management and dissemination of biodiversity data for South East Wales. Our aim is to make appropriate local biodiversity information available to all those who need it, to help ensure that decisions which affect local biodiversity are made using best available data.

We achieve this aim by:

  • Supporting the local biological recording community and helping them to manage and mobilise the wealth of information they gather;
  • Working with a wide range of organisations (from Welsh Government departments to Wildlife Trusts) to collate and computerise the data they hold;
  • Collating and managing these diverse data sets in a central location; and
  • Delivering a range of innovative and tailored biodiversity information products and services to meet the needs of our users.

We currently hold over 5 million species records and are constantly working to improve the quality and quantity of our data holdings.
