The Wildlife Information Centre (TWIC) is the biological record centre for the Lothians, Scottish Borders, Falkirk, Stirling, Clackmannanshire and most of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Based in Caretaker’s Cottage, attached to Vogrie House, TWIC collects, collates and disseminates information about the wildlife in our area. The centre is a not-for-profit company with charitable status and provides objective, independent wildlife information for people and organisations.
The centre provides a wide range of data services to Government organisations, local authorities, businesses and community organisations, as well as running excursions, training workshops and assisting local communities gather wildlife records.
TWIC is funded by grant aid from Scottish Natural Heritage, providing services to some of the councils in our area and income from contract work, projects and voluntary contributions.

TWIC is opening its door again as part of Doors Open Day in Midlothian to allow people to come in and see some of the work that we do, find out about the different wildlife surveys we are involved in and learn how they can take part too. We are happy to receive wildlife records from everyone.
