Charity description

National Biodiversity Network Trust logo
The National Biodiversity Network has been championing the sharing of biological data since 2000. We are the UK’s largest partnership for nature, with over 180 members and more than 217 million wildlife records available through the NBN Atlas.

The National Biodiversity Network (NBN) is a membership organisation built on principles of collaboration and sharing biological information.

Biological data are recorded by many organisations and people, collected together using a range of systems, verified by experts, curated by a wide range of organisations and then aggregated and shared regionally primarily by Local Environmental Record Centres and nationally via the NBN Atlas which holds more than 217 million biological records.
The Network’s priority is to grow the national commitment to sharing biological data and information. Through this we will provide a comprehensive, unparalleled and authoritative understanding of our natural world and will use that knowledge effectively to educate and inform.

The NBN vision is that:
“Biological data collected and shared openly by the Network are central to the UK’s learning and understanding of its biodiversity and are critical to all decision-making about nature and the environment.”
