Grab a Glos Grid Reference!
Our online grid reference finder maps are proving popular. We have now upgraded them so that they use the latest version of Google Maps and Ordnance Survey Open Data; they also have better map storage. Hopefully they will load faster and be more stable to use as a result! Click to see the map>>
Our maps are based on the Grab a Grid Ref maps on the Bedfordshire Natural History Society website.
Our version is tailored for Gloucestershire and features GWT nature reserve outlines. It has also been updated to be used on mobile devices with GPS.
The Last Hedgehog in Gloucestershire?
In response to the alarming decline in hedgehog numbers, The Wildlife Trusts are running major hedgehog survey and conservation campaigns this year.
One of the problems with hedgehog conservation is working out just where they are; actually counting them is very difficult, and they have not traditionally been well-recorded, as there was a general assumption that they are common. To help get more information, GCER developed online record forms which were tested over the summer and launched on the GWT website this summer.
