Thank you for providing your Royal Parks wildlife record.

Submitted records are entered into the GiGL database and shared with partners and others who have signed data use agreements, for their work.

Your record details will not be passed on to anyone else. We ask for your contact details should we wish to follow up your sighting now or in the future.
Species data (accompanied by your name but no other personal details) will be uploaded to the National Biodiversity Network Gateway.

​Your details



What did you see?

1. Start typing the species name and a list will appear (may take a few moments, depending on internet speed).  

2. Click on the correct species name from the list. Note: typed names DO NOT get accepted by the database at this time, please find your species within the list.  

Trouble-shooting - If you can't find your species try typing a fuller name, e.g. common frog instead of frog, to reduce the number of search results.  As the list is a complete species dictionary for the UK, we're aware the number of species options can be quite long and names might be more formal than commonly used e.g. if you type "grey squirrel" you will then have the option "Sciurus carolinensis : terrestrial mammal (Eastern Grey Squirrel)" to select from the list.  We're working on making this process smoother, thanks for your patience.
