The NBN Gateway now has over 100 million records! iSpot is one among the many individuals, recording schemes and records centres who have contributed to this impressive total. The 100 millionth record was of a Two-spot Ladybird.


Welcome to the new look for iSpot! Months of hard work by the iSpot development team can now be revealed, with a fresh design and exciting additional features. Here are the main changes that you will find. We hope you like them!


We're pleased to announce a new feature on iSpot: the Species browser. This allows you to browse through the most frequently observed species in different groups of wildlife, and can help you identify what you have seen.


New on iSpot: identification quizzes! Test your skills and practice identifying the different wildlife groups, selected from the wide range of observations on iSpot.


We're making a map of Britain's trees and their ecosystem benefits. You can help by adding trees in your area, and getting involved with a range of citizen science tree projects.
