Getting involved

There are a number of ways that you can register your interest and get involved in the Tomorrow's Biodiversity Project. These are outlined below. As the project matures, there will be more opportunities for you to contribute and, in parallel with that, more outputs from the project that can enhance your work as a biological recorder. Stay it touch with us to hear about new opportunities and outputs as they arrive.

You can sign up to the newsletter

This is the simplest and best way to make sure that you are always kept abreast of developments with the Tomorrow's Biodiversity Project. If you sign up to our newsletter, then you will be alerted by email whenever we have significant news. By signing up to the newsletter you become a registered 'FSC Biodiversity Fellow'. To sign up for the newsletter, follow this link.

You can also register for a scratchpad account

If you are keen to make more of a contribution to the project through the scratchpad, you can register for a user account. When you've registered an account and we've activated it, you can log in to the scratchpad. When you are logged in, you can add comments at the foot of many of the content pages without having to have them approved first by us. (Anonymous users - i.e. those not logged in - can also post comments on these pages, but they do not appear until they are approved.)

To register for a user account, click on the 'Log in' link at the top-right of the scratchpad. Follow the 'Create new account' link that appears and you will be presented with an account registration form. Provide the required details and submit this form. We will activate your account as soon as we can, after which you will be able to log in. Occasionally there are problems with this process and if you are affected by them, just contact us directly and we will create a new account for you.

In addition, if you want to contribute content directly to the site, you can contact us to ask for a higher level of access. With a higher level of access you could, for example, contribute a blog posting about something of interest to you and  relevant to the Tomorrow's Biodiversity Project. We want the scratchpad to be a forum for ideas and creativity, so we would welcome requests from people who want to contribute in this way. Contact us if this appeals to you.
