OU and OPAL
The OPAL Biodiversity Centre, led by the OU, inspired people of
all ages to take an active interest in England's wildlife through the
development of new resources to help them identify and study
iSpot allows people to share their photos and get help with identification, or assist others and build their reputation as a wildlife expert.
