Record a priority pond
If you’ve found a potential priority pond, you can submit your record and add it to the priority ponds map. Mapping priority ponds (a habitat of principle concern) helps agencies, organisations and individuals to protect and enhance ponds and the critical freshwater wildlife they support.
How to record a priority pond
1 Ensure your pond qualifies
Ensure that your pond qualifies as a priority pond on the basis of at least one of the priority pond criteria.
You will be asked for supporting information to help validated your record before it is accepted. This could include, for example: expert knowledge or verification, photos or species lists.
