At Devon Biodiversity Records Centre (DBRC) we collect, manage and make available records of wildlife. We manage a database of over 2 million records which is updated by 2,000-5,000 records a month. All of our records are validated and verified. We also manage data on wildlife habitats and geological sites. DBRC is one of a national network of Local Environmental Records Centres in the UK and has been providing information about wildlife for over fifteen years.
DBRC is run on a ‘not for profit’ basis. We were set up and are hosted by Devon Wildlife Trust to act a central reference point for anyone who wants to know about wildlife in Devon. DBRC is supported by a large partnership of organisations and individuals including Devon County Council and Natural England. We have a permanent staff of six people at DBRC and up to ten people working on a voluntary basis or on short contracts.
