We already know a great deal about the birds and plants of the islands, in comparison our knowledge of most of the invertebrates, and fungi is very limited. If you look at the distribution maps for many of the animals and plants found on the Scottish mainland on the National Biodiversity Network Gateway on-line database you will discover that there are comparatively few records for the Outer Hebrides
How to get involved
If you are interested in wildlife and would like to know how to begin recording we can help you make a start. To encourage more people to participate we organise workshops and activity days for beginners and provide ongoing support for active recorders to help them expand and improve their skills.
