The latest quarterly WILDCOMS newsletter can be found in our Newsletters
Information about the individual surveillance schemes in the WILDCOMS network can be found in Schemes
Many of the individual schemes in the WILDCOMS network rely on the public to send in dead birds and mammals that they find.
If you have found a dead bird or mammal, please look at our Samples wanted page to find out which scheme you should contact.
The WILDCOMS network has been established through a Knowledge Exchange grant from the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)
