National Biodiversity Network Trust

The National Biodiversity Network (NBN) is a collaborative project, but, above all else, it is a partnership, which involves many of the UK’s wildlife conservation organisations, the government and country agencies, environmental agencies, local environmental records centres and also many voluntary groups.

All of these organisations collect and use biodiversity data and they are all committed to making this information widely available.

Together we are the UK's largest partnership for nature.

Founded 2000
