Welcome to The Wildlife Information Centre (TWIC) website
TWIC is the Local Environmental Records Centre for south-east & part of central Scotland that collects, collates and disseminates information about wildlife in our area (See Figure 1
for the area we cover). TWIC is part of the Association of Local Environmental Records Centres (ALERC) and a member of the
National Biodiversity Network. In 2016 we celebrate 25 years since Wildlife Insite
- what was to become TWIC - was formed. For more information on how TWIC is run please see our About Us pages.
TWIC holds data on species, habitats and designated sites for our area. At present our database holds more than 2 million species records. Visit our Request data page for details of how
to request data from TWIC.
TWIC is a focal point for recording in our region and provides support for recorders through workshops, bi-annual conferences and
excursions. TWIC promotes biological recording by attending events and running wildlife surveys and occasional BioBlitz events to encourage everyone
to get involved in recording.
