iSpot logo Taking a closer look at natural habitats

There's a great variety of wildlife habitats around the UK for everyone to explore, whatever the weather or time of year! Why not take a photo of your wildlife observations next time you're out and about?

To help you with identification, the iSpot website aims to help anyone identify anything in nature.

Once you've registered, you can add an observation to the website and suggest an identification yourself or see if anyone else can identify it for you. You can also help others by adding an identification to an existing observation, which you may like to do as your knowledge grows.

Your reputation on the site will grow as people agree with you identifications. You may also like to visit our forums which offer lively debate around observations and other more general topics.
