Dorset Environmental Records Centre was established in 1976 as an independent organisation to collate information on all of Dorset's wildlife. It provides an opportunity for local naturalists and conservation organisations to work together.

By combining our knowledge DERC can create a better picture of Dorset's wildlife - both the recent decline and loss of some of our more spectacular species (like the large tortoiseshell and the mouse-eared bat) and the arrival (or invasion?) and spread of others (like the Long-winged Conehead and Japanese knotweed).

Data held by DERC is accessible to everyone* from students and local residents to local authorities, conservation organisations and consultants. DERC do not charge for data, but we do make a minimal charge to help cover our administration costs.
