NFBR CONFERENCE 2013
The 2013 NFBR Conference Biological Recording from the Local Perspective took place on 18th & 19th of April 2013, in Poole, Dorset. Presentations are now available via the conference page. A conference report will follow in the near future.
Did you attend to the conference? Since the conference venue is on the shore of a rather nice bay, and since NFBR conference attendees are know to indulge in a bit of recording during coffee breaks, John van Breda thought it might be nice to try and capture a few records from around the conference venue, a mini-bioblitz if you like. If anyone has any records to contribute, there is an online recording form on iRecord (http://bit.ly/record-nfbr2013).
NFBR Secretary honoured
John Newbould was elected to Honorary Membership of the NBN Trust in recognition of his long-term, dedicated support for the study of natural history and especially his support of amateur biological recording by Professor Michael Hassel CBE (Chairman NBN Trust) on 23rd November 2012 at the Royal Society, London.
Current NFBR projects and activities
Following the launch of From Recording to Revelation, NFBR's strategic plan for 2011-2015, NFBR is working towards a major collaborative project to identify how the future needs of all sectors of the biological recording community, the various users of biodiversity information and the support infrastructures on which they depend may best be addressed. As an important first step, NFBR has been meeting with a series of key organisations covering a range of interests in recording and related matters.
