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.

Big Thank you to Lanercost Primary School’s Eco Warriors who have been learning about habitats and classification. They invited CBDC to help them use their knowledge in Island Wood next to the school. Together we made 101 records, which included new species records for Lanercost including Stinkhorn, Larch ladybird, Pill milipede. CBDC is looking forward to receiving more records in the future.

SAVE THE DATE: 29th February 2020-CBDC Recorders' Conference. New date will allow everyone time to process 2019 records and provide an opportunity for "hot off the press" reports and presentations. We haven't decided a theme yet...but the date is triggering a few ideas. https://t.co/YJnV1kh5Ev CumbriaBDC photo

@solwaywalker Thanks Ann. Sending it to me is a start we will add it to the Cumbria records. If you have any other records for the Solway I can add them to our List. The volunteers we recruited last year wanted to focus on plants so we are still short on shore data.
