To help to sustain and enhance the biodiversity of the Outer Hebrides to enrich the lives of local communities and future generations
To increase our knowledge of the nature and distribution of the flora, fauna and fungi of our islands and make this information available to everyone
Biodiversity in Action
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.
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.
Be inspired, learn, explore and make a difference.
Maintaining the biodiversity of our islands is essential for the health and well-being of our natural environment and communities. Biodiversity information is fundamentally important if we are to make informed decisions about how we manage and protect our natural environment.
To protect our biodiversity and natural heritage we need an integrated approach to managing our natural resources and to learn to value the nature as part of our everyday experience.
"It is that range of biodiversity that we must care for - the whole thing - rather than just one or two stars."
