TWIC is the Local Environmental Records Centre for south-east & central Scotland that collects, collates and disseminates information about wildlife in our area. Refer to our map below for the area we cover.

TWIC is part of a network of Local Environmental Records Centres in the UK. For more information on how TWIC is funded and run please see our About Us pages.

TWIC holds data on species, habitats and designated sites for our area. At present our database holds almost 3.9 million species records. Find out how to request data here.

TWIC organises a training and events programme to support new and existing recorders. We attend events and run wildlife surveys and occasional BioBlitz events to inspire a new generation of naturalists.

Please note that our landline is down at the moment. To contact us please use the manager's mobile or contact a member of the team via email - see the Contact page.
