  • Dutch Butterfly Conservation 2 published datasets

    Dutch Butterfly Conservation, the name "De Vlinderstichting" uses when working in an international context, was founded in 1983, with conservation and restoration of the Dutch butterfly fauna as its major mission.

Dutch Butterfly Conservation works on many aspects of butterfly conservation, often related to nature restoration and nature development. Butterflies, moths and dragonflies are good indicators for the quality of our environment, whether it is natural, agricultural or urban in nature, and research on these species and monitoring their abundance and diversity, provides us with knowledge on population trends and developments related to climatological and environmental changes. More than 1500 volunteers actively support the practical (field)work of the organisation and about 6000 members provide financial support and / or donations. At the bureau of the organisation the about 30 staff members are involved in scientific research, policy support, consultancy services, educational activities and international collaborative projects. Dutch Butterfly Conservation was one of the founding organisations of Butterfly Conservation Europe (BCE) and works with many sister organizations, both in the Netherlands and abroad.

  • Dutch National Database of Flora and Fauna (NDFF)

    The Dutch National Database Flora and Fauna (NDFF) is the data warehouse construction that contains the distribution data of plants and animals in the Netherlands. Its main components are: data entry portal(s), a central archive, validation service and data export portal(s). In the Netherlands vast amounts of data on the whereabouts of species over the last century have been gathered and stored. However it is scattered among different organizations, in different formats and not always digitally available. The National Database Flora and Fauna (NDFF) has been built to make distribution data of (flora and fauna) species available through one National Data Warehouse. All data entering the NDFF are validated using a quality filter on input. Data that are approved will flow through to the central archive and the export portals. At the moment the NDFF contains over 100 million records that are supplemented on a daily basis by over 20.000 volunteers, including members of species organizations (like Sovon, De Vlinderstichting, RAVON and other voluntary and professional observers).

The EBCC promotes the integration of bird observation data derived from citizen-science projects and the development of rigorous methods to understand the changing ability of European landscapes to support wildlife. The association runs major international citizen-science projects such as the new European Breeding Bird Atlas (EBBA2) and the Pan-European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS).

Observation.org, until 2014 known under the name of Observado.org, is available in several languages including English, German, Danish, Swedish, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovenian, Czech, Polish, Ukrainian, Hebrew, Arabic, Persian, Greek, Thai and Frisian. For each country or continent a customised view can be selected, including the specific statistics for these countries and / or continents. Also at other levels, such as regional or thematically, customised views and statistics can be generated in order to support the work of local research or nature conservation groups. The quality of the data is monitored by a team of international specialists and universal species checklists and codes are being used in order to facilitate the easy sharing of data with other organisations and initiatives. Every year several millions of observations are added to the Observation.org database and the total number of observations, often provided with images, keeps on growing.
