Biodiversity Data

Species and ecosystem Subnational data developed by our provincial and territorial Conservation Data Centres (CDCs) is aggregated and reconciled by NatureServe and NatureServe Canada and informs the development of our National and Global data.  This multi-jurisdiction dataset is kept current, accurate and standardized throughout the NatureServe Network via data exchanges between the Central Biotics database and the CDC databases.  

A key mandate of CDCs and NatureServe Canada is to distribute our biodiversity information to decision-makers, researchers and the public.  Please refer to our Data Requests and Data Sharing pages for instructions on submitting data requests or submitting data to the CDCs and/or to NatureServe Canada.
