Welcome to Cofnod - the Local Records Centre for North Wales

Bringing together wildlife data across North Wales

Price Increases

From 1st August we will be increasing our prices for commercial enquiries, but also launching an exciting new interactive enquiries mapping system called eMapper. We've produced a sample report for you to view here. Please send us any feedback about the system to help us make it better.

We will also be introducing a low-cost (small search area) bat & bird report, suitable for consultants working on smaller projects.
