Deescover Project on BBC Radio Wales
NatureSpy’s new Deescover Project has been featured live on BBC Radio Wales.
On Tuesday 6th December, NatureSpy’s James McConnell spoke to Sarah Easedale live from a woodlands near Ruthin, where camera traps are currently installed for the project – and you can listen again above.
They discussed camera traps and what the project will be doing through the Clwydian Range & Dee Valley AONB.
Ceri Lloyd, Sustainable Development Officer for the AONB also spoke about Deescover and what it aims to achieve.
The DeeScover Project is focused in the beautiful Clwydian Range & Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. NatureSpy will be using camera traps to uncover the rarer and under-recorded species that live in some of Wales’ most stunning scenery.
As well as looking for the AONB’s wilder side, the project will also be visiting schools in the area to engage pupils with the often-unseen wildlife that lives on their doorstep.
A team of volunteers is helping to set up and collect the camera traps, and submit valuable wildlife records to Cofnod, North Wales’ Environmental Record Centre.
