Rare and Protected Species Records Across Wales 1975 to 2012
This dataset is primarily made up of aquatic and riparian species (marine and freshwater) including invertebrates, plants, algae and fish. The data includes ad-hoc records from surveys at local offices.
Data collection started in the 1970s onwards. This dataset does not include records of Freshwater Pearl Mussel, but otherwise includes all Rare and Protected species surveyed by the former Environment Agency Wales, now Natural Resources Wales. Formally known as AfA 225.
The aim of this data collection was to monitor the distribution of rare and protected species across Wales.
Confidence in this dataset is High. Each record has been provided either as part of a survey where the surveyor was professional, trained or validated by Biodiversity staff.
Rare and Protected Species are surveyed and collected through the former Environment Agency's Wales monitoring activities and from 1970 to 2013. Since 2013 all data collection for Wales was conducted by Natural Resources Wales. Data are extracted from National Fish Population Database (NFPD).
