NESBReC collates, manages and provides biological information for the North East of Scotland.
Founded in 2000, NESBReC covers Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen City, Moray and since 2009 the Cairngorms Local Biodiversity Action Plan (LBAP) area. See map
Currently over 1 million species records are held, as well as other biological datasets. We do this to support the North East Local Biodiversity Action Plan and the National Biodiversity Network. For more information on what we do, see About us
NESBREC would like to pass on its sincerest thanks to all those recorders and organisations that have provided us with the data included in these web pages. We would also like to thank the many volunteers who have given their valuable time since 2000 in checking and processing records for NESBReC.
The NE Scotland Mammal Atlas is a recent initiative which involves a collaboration between a number of organisations and volunteers to develop a new Mammal Atlas covering NE Scotland. As well as sending us your sightings of mammals, we are looking for volunteers to adopt and visit a 10km square looking for mammals or their signs. You can check the status of individual squares and keep up to date with the progress of this survey over the next two years by checking out the NE Scotland Mammal Atlas online (note that Internet Explorer 8 and other older browsers will experience problems when trying to access the map. A static map (also handy for printing) is available here.
