HBIC offers an interpreted biodiversity information service. The information that is provided is made as reader-friendly as possible, and is accompanied by explanatory notes and definitions of terminology used. A charge may be made for commercial re-use of the data, although the supply of information is normally free to voluntary conservation bodies and local groups, students and members of the public (where there is no commercial interest).
For more information on charges see Charges and response times.
Before submitting a Data Request it is important that you read and understand the following guidance notes:
Whenever possible please use the on-line data request form to make a request as this helps HBIC to reduce administration overheads and ensures response times are logged and monitored.
The form takes five to 10 minutes to complete and a copy of the form can be printed or saved if required. Digital maps and GIS shapefiles defining your search area can be attached to the on-line form electronically or can be sent separately by email or post along with the reference to your on-line application.
Alternatively, you may download or print out and complete a data request form in either PDF or Word format:
Please send the form, along with any associated maps, to:
