Welcome to the Guernsey Biological Records Centre

The Guernsey Biological Records Centre (GBRC) is run by Environment Guernsey on behalf of the two partners,  La Société Guernesiaise and the States of Guernsey. The Centre works with a wide range of organisations, individuals and government bodies to provide information about the species and habitats found in our islands. It collates, manages and stores data that describes our local biodiversity and forms an evidence base to which decision makers can refer when making decisions which may impact on wildlife or wildlife habitat.

Pictures

These are a selection of some records I have received at the GBRC. We are always interested to hear what people have locally – it helps us to build up an understanding of our local fauna and flora and work to ensure their future survival.

You can submit records via the submit a record form on the website, or email us. While pictures aren’t required they are very helpful in building up a visual catalogue, can help with identification – especially if you’re not sure what you’ve seen, and showcase the photography skills of recorder.
