TWIC is the Local Environmental Records Centre for the Lothians, Scottish Borders, Falkirk, Stirling and Clackmannanshire Council areas and part of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.
We gather biodiversity data from a variety of sources and disseminate this information to a wide range of users, including statutory and non-statutory agencies, consultants, academia and recorders.
At present our database holds 2 million records. For more information on how TWIC is run please see our About Us pages.
Recorders: If you would like to contribute wildlife sightings to TWIC, get help on species identification or find out about recording events please visit our Recording pages.
Commercial users: Information on how to request data from TWIC can be found on our Services page.
