Herefordshire Biological Records Centre

Herefordshire Biological Records Centre (HBRC) was developed by the council in 2001 and sits within the ecology service.

The centre is a not-for-profit partnership service that collects, manages and distributes all data for Herefordshire relating to wildlife sites, species, habitats, biodiversity and nature.

HBRC's main aim is to provide as wide access as possible to both species and habitat records for Herefordshire and assist in the protection of those species and habitats.

How is the biological record centre data used?

Our database currently holds over 570,000 records.

We use these records to inform, educate and provide data that environmentalists, ecologists, planners, and other individuals and organisations can use.

We also aim to provide support for biological recording and for biological recorders within Herefordshire.

Regional and national projects also use HBRC data to conserve biodiversity on a larger scale.
