Developed in partnership with the National Forum for Biological Recording and the Biological Records Centre in 2015, these annual Awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding contributions made by individuals and groups to wildlife recording – which is helping to improve our understanding of the natural world within the UK and enabling evidence-based environmental decision making.
