Discover your local wildlife

Cumbria has some fantastic places where wildlife is thriving, from our upland wetlands to ancient woodlands, which you can explore at our nature reserves. But sadly this isn't the case everywhere in the county.

On this page you can search for an animal species, find out more about the places wildlife calls home, get closer to animals by watching a wildlife cam, listen to wild sounds and see how you can help the wildlife you love.
