The Importance of Recording Biodiversity Data

The UK is home to a wide range of living things that are characterized in hundreds of National Parks. You may have probably seen large numbers of tourists streaming into museums and parks. As much as this shapes the park, it is equally important to monitor wildlife. To maintain this flow of tourists into parks and reserves, it is very important to have records of growth and migration. For more than two decades, NFBR has continued to provide scientific data on wildlife populations in this region. There are a number of reasons as to why recording biodiversity is important.

Wildlife and aquatic life need to be monitored for proper development and co-existence. Over the years, there have been growth and development changes that had to be monitored and studied for future references. Ideally, biodiversity data can help plan for the future of particular species. Some species have been eradicated by natural factors. Most scientists and naturalists believe that a good number of the species extinction would have been avoided with proper measures.

Enhancing strategies aimed at Safeguarding Wildlife

Biodiversity records help analyze and come up with strategies that can help control population. Human activities such as poaching, deforestation and even industrialization have proven to be a big threat to wildlife. Many environment organizations in the UK have relied on records from NBN to offer insights on the specific measures that can be taken to save wild life.

This is because changes in the environment can lead to mutations introducing unwanted characteristics in micro-organisms such as bacteria and viruses.

Finally, NBN tries to bring together wildlife professionals from all over UK and Ireland offering scientific insights on the data collected. These helps come up with vital and development oriented programs that will help enhance better human and wildlife co-existence.
