Explore and Record the Rhins

During summer 2021, the ‘Explore and Record the Rhins‘ project is encouraging residents and visitors to get out and about on the Rhins of Galloway and to explore the wildlife of the area. Our friends at Solway Firth Partnership are leading the project – you can find more about it and download some useful resources on the Explore and Record the Rhins project web page.

SWSEIC are working with SFP to gather wildlife records for the area and to highlight the diverse range of flora and fauna found around the Rhins. Follow the links in the boxes below to find out more about the wildlife of the area and to report your own sightings.
