The Network is an ever-growing network of individuals and organisations, recording and caring for the UK’s wildlife data and making it universally accessible to the public, educators, researchers, conservationists and environmental decision-makers. The partnership of the Network allows us to run the national NBN Atlas which now holds over 219 million records of wildlife in the UK as well as a growing database of habit and ecosystem data. These important resources are used daily in decision making about environmental management, and for research and conservation. The NBN is a partnership organisation and it’s through this network the NBN will grow and develop. Your membership is important in helping the Network achieve those aims.
The awards are a fantastic celebration of the success of projects, businesses and individuals who have made significant contributions to protecting the natural environment. Ecology and Environmental Management are integral parts of caring for our natural world and by sponsoring this new award we are helping promote excellence in teaching of this complex subject to give the next generation of rangers, ecologists, wildlife warriors, landscape managers and environmental educators a good understanding of all things ecological and to make the best start on their careers.
The Award opens for nominations in August with the rest of the Awards opening in October. Keep an eye on the CIEEM website for updates.
