Species Identification

The SEEK app by inaturalist, enables identification of 1000s of different species and can be used to introduce young people to classification. It’s a wonderful way to study the biodiversity of the Quantocks Hills. Photographing, drawing and collecting natural finds for the artwork enables discussion about what trees, plants, insects and fungi live here.

The information covers rural, urban, coastal and marine environments across Great Britain. It is presented in an interactive map which can be explored using various mapping tools that are included.
