We operate a national network of monitoring stations in diverse habitats including lowlands, uplands, wetlands, lakes, rivers, forests and heaths. Our scientists use the sites in a variety of projects and we have accumulated decades of detailed data, from wild bird populations on the Isle of May to water quality of freshwater lakes. This has a practical purpose: in-depth, local information is the first step in making sustainable management policies.

Some of our monitoring sites are available for use by the wider environmental research community. Contact the relevant site manager for details.
