Pupils become wildlife explorers for the day and discover some of the wonderful wildlife in their school grounds or local neighbourhoods. By using these resources alongside the free wildlife recording app iNaturalist, pupils can submit biological records to local and national databases, helping scientists and researchers gain a greater understanding of a region's biodiversity - perfect for a bit of Citizen Science. Or keep it simple, and use the app to encourage children to look more closely whilst honing their identification skills.
