Outer Hebrides Biological Recording

OHBR field meeting

Discovering and Documenting our Natural Heritage

We know very little about the distribution of the animals, plants and fungi which are found in the islands of the Outer Hebrides so all the records we receive, even of very common species, are important. You don't have to be a scientist, you can help us conserve our natural heritage and maintain the quality and biodiversity of our landscape.
