TWIC currently runs five wildlife surveys. These surveys focus on easy to identify species that would benefit from further recording effort. These surveys are open to everyone. By submitting your sightings to TWIC you are
helping us better understand the distribution of these organisms and to provide the evidence-base for their conservation. Click on the links below to find out more about a particular survey.
Request wildlife survey postcards
If you would like postcards for our wildlife surveys (excepting Brown Hares) to distribute to your group, visitor centre or other public place, please email
email@example.com, with the Subject of your email set to “Postcard request”, and tell us: how many postcards you require, from which survey(s) and the name and address
that the postcards should be sent to. We can mail up to 300 postcards free of charge. If you require larger quantities, please arrange to collect them from the TWIC office or we may be able to drop them off for you.
Donations towards postage costs and running costs for surveys are welcome.
Note that we are only interested in receiving records for the TWIC area (see this map for the area we cover; PDF, 1 page, 6.99 MB) with the exception of the
Scottish Spider Search which covers all of Scotland.
Survey posters can be downloaded from the website by following the links to the individual survey pages above.
