Natural History Near You
Putting natural history collections on the map
Natural History Near You is a crowdsourcing project that aims to enable people who work with natural science collections to put them on the map.
This exercise will help researchers to find collections that they might use in their local area, or to plan more effective research trips to other regions. It will help schools to plan visits and provide the public with information about collections they may want to visit.
It will also allow NatSCA to keep track of the state of natural history collections in Britain and Ireland, to get a better understanding of the changing sector and to offer advocacy support where it might be needed.
