Atlas of Living Scotland

The Atlas of Living Scotland is the country’s largest collection of biodiversity information.

It has information on 24, 500 species found in Scotland.

If you want to find out what species are present in your neighbourhood or if you’ve spotted something and you don’t know what it is, there’s a good chance you’ll find it on the Atlas of Living Scotland.

You can record sightings of species as well, if you were out at the Knock of Crieff and spotted a woodcock you can record it on the website helping to build a nationwide picture of which species live where.

You can use Perth and Kinross Councils interactive mapping tool to locate countryside sites, parks and footpaths to visit http://www.pkc.gov.uk/article/3557/Main-Map

And when you’ve spotted species you want to record you can do so here http://www.als.scot/
