The National Biodiversity Network wants to recognise significant achievement and celebrate success in biological recording and information sharing.
The NBN therefore established a national award scheme, in 2015, in partnership with the Biological Records Centre and the National Forum for Biological Recording. These awards are made annually to individuals, groups of people or organisations that are making outstanding contributions to biological recording and improving our understanding of the natural world.
The 2017 Shortlist was announced on Friday 29 September.
The 2017 Winners were announced on Thursday 16 November.
