Since its establishment in 2007, the National Biodiversity Data Centre has developed into an essential component of the national heritage infrastructure to make information on Ireland’s biodiversity more accessible for decision-making, to assist engagement by both the public and private sectors with biodiversity and to support the conservation of biological diversity in Ireland. It achieves this through a diverse work programme that is supported by a state-of-the-art bioinformatics infrastructure and a small but dedicated team of staff.

The work programme of the centre can be divided up into several main project areas. Click on any of the tabs below to learn more about the work carried out at the National Biodiversity Data Centre:
