 Norfolk's Wildlife Statistics Revealed

 The natural environment is one of Norfolk's key assets, with outstanding landscapes and rich biodiversity.
A new report from NBIS summarises the current 'State of the Natural Environment', showcasing the county's current vital statistics on habitats, species and protected sites.
Did you know that over 15,000 different species have been recorded in Norfolk, or that 15% of these are rarities? Or ever wondered how much saltmarsh* there is in Norfolk, how many beetle** species have been recorded, or what rarities*** have turned up recently? If so, this is the place to look to find the answers and many other fascinating and important statistics about Norfolk's natural environment.

Lizzy Oddy, Assistant Biodiversity Information Officer with NBIS who has authored the report said "The NBIS database is a rich resource for information on Norfolk's wildlife with a staggering 2.5 million records. Our new report presents the information in a digestible format which we hope will encourage even greater interest in the natural environment and inspire people to help us with wildlife recording".

The information is also an important 'baseline' against which future changes in Norfolk's wildlife can be monitored.

Read the report here

* area of saltmarsh in Norfolk = 4101.94ha
** number of beetle species recorded in Norfolk = 2627
*** recent rarities = scarce tortoiseshell butterfly; weedy frillwort (a liverwort); Gloephyllum abietinum (fungus); northern Rowan pigmy (a moth); Formica cunicularia (an ant); Andricus gemmeus (gall wasp)

A further report has also been produced highlighting the work of the Biodiversity Team at Norfolk County Council in 2014-15. The Biodiversity Team comprises Norfolk Biodiversity Information Service (NBIS), Norfolk Biodiversity Partnership and Norfolk Non-native Species Initiative. Read the report here
