199 delegates attended the 2020 NBN Conference, which was held online for the first time on 18 November.  This is the highest number of delegates ever to attend an NBN Conference! A cross section of organisations were represented and included wildlife NGOs, academia, local environmental records centres, recording schemes, country agencies, students and individuals all with an interest in sharing and using biodiversity data and wildlife recording.

There were thirteen presentations including two keynote addresses, one of which was the annual Sir John Burnett Memorial lecture.

We also held the NBN Trust AGM and announced the winners and runners up in the NBN Awards for Wildlife Recording 2020. These were both recorded and along with the presentations will be posted here soon.

PDFs of all of the presentations can be found on the NBN Conference 2020 – Presentations page.
