Cumbria Biodiversity Data Centre

The Cumbria Biodiversity Data Centre at Tullie House Museum, Carlisle keeps wildlife information for the county of Cumbria. Tullie House Museum, in its role as a local natural history museum, has collected and disseminated records of wildlife in Cumbria since its inception in 1893. From the early 1990s the Museum has developed a computerised database of species and habitat records in Cumbria and has taken the central role in providing a local biodiversity data service for the county. This role was restyled as Cumbria Biodiversity Data Centre (CBDC) in 2010, a not-for-profit organisation hosted by Tullie House Museum and advised by local stakeholders.

Still got last years's records to process? Then now could be a good time! Although Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery Trust has taken the difficult decision to close the building and grounds from Thursday 19th March, in accordance with Government Guidance. CBDC will continue to operate with staff working from home, but sadly we have had to cancel all face to face meetings and training up to the end of April.

Wood anemones and early dog violets out by the river Wear in Durham now - getting outside and looking for signs of spring at this surreal time seems like the best #NaturalHealthService @BSBIbotany https://t.co/l2KoNthcz8 CumbriaBDC photo

3. This decision was not taken lightly & was done in conjunction with partners & stakeholders. With the health of our community uppermost in our minds we feel closing is the safest option. We look forward to reopening with our programme of exhibitions & events as soon as possible
