Years in action, NCF has maintained the lead in promoting biodiversity conservation, with repository data record ranging from birds to other flora and fauna: The sources of NCF Bird data, are basically from it conservation activities across Nigeria; thus, making NCF an institutional symbol of natural resource management in Nigeria. Through its conservation projects, the foundation is managing unique nature conservation sites, that provide flora and fauna resource materials for biological research and evidence on ecosystem service and stability. NCF has it National Secretariat located at the Lekki Conservation Centre in Lagos Nigeria. The dataset presently holds 9 records of birds collected between 2018 which consist of 9 families, 9 genera and 9 species.

Project Data

The objective of this project is to initiate mobilization of biodiversity data from Nigerian data holders, custodians, and institutions, estimated to hold more than 700,000 data records related to plants and animals within protected areas and likewise invasive, threatened and endemic species. While educating biodiversity data stakeholders across Nigeria on the benefits of biodiversity data mobilization and sharing, the project will also disseminate and demonstrate best practices for digitizing natural history collections through training workshops and thereby mobilize biodiversity data from Nigeria.
