Species Data

The CBDC database of over 2 million digitised records has been built up over a period of 20 years and includes over 12,000 species across all major taxon groups. Every year CBDC receives records from c 800 Cumbrian recorders, covering a wide range of taxonomic groups, including most invertebrates, mammals, amphibians, reptiles and invasive species. CBDC’s data includes 236 datasets including those from local natural history groups, individual recorders, local and national recording schemes, Cumbria Wildlife Trust, statutory bodies and many more.

Additional Species Data

Although CBDC holds many records it does not include all species observations in Cumbria. National schemes and larger local organisations may share their records via NBN Gateway. Anyone wishing to use this data are advised to contact the organisation directly. Read more….
