TV presenter and naturalist Chris Packham is to come to Yateley Common, as part of the first independent audit of its kind in the UK involving Citizen Science. His goal is to highlight the extent to which the nation’s species are under threat.

On 23rd July he’ll be coming to Yateley Common, one of 48 sites across the country he’ll be stopping off as part of his UK BioBlitz – nature reserves are not enough! campaign.

Chris’s UK BioBlitz – nature reserves are not enough! campaign has a serious purpose, as the results of the 2018 audit will be recorded to create a benchmark: this will help measure the rise and fall in numbers of different species on these sites in the future.
