More than 260 delegates attended the 2021 NBN Conference, on 24 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 recording wildlife. The theme of the Conference was “Biodiversity data – from collection to use”

There were sixteen 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 2021. These were both recorded and will be available by mid December.

Video recordings and PDFs of all of the presentations can be found on the NBN Conference 2021 – presentations page.
