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 a member of the Association of Local Environmental Records Centres (ALERC) and
National Biodiversity Network. 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 2.9 million species records. Find out how to request data here.
TWIC 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.
Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the TWIC office will be closed from 24/03/2020 until further notice. TWIC staff will be
working from home and we intend to carry on with work as 'business as usual'. If you need to contact a member of the team please use the relevant email
