Welcome to NBRC


Northamptonshire Biodiversity Records Centre (NBRC) supports the recording, curation and sharing of quality verified environmental information for sound decision-making. We are a not-for profit, impartial, independent provider of biodiversity and geodiversity information for all who wish to use it. The centre is one of nearly fifty county-based Local Environmental Records Centres operating across the UK and we are members of the national Association of Local Environmental Records Centres (ALERC), the National Biodiversity Network (NBN), the National Forum for Biological Recording (NFBR), and the county’s Biodiversity Partnership and Local Nature Partnership.
