B.C. Conservation Data Centre

Providing information on rare organisms and ecosystems

The British Columbia Conservation Data Centre (CDC) systematically collects and disseminates information on the rare and endangered plants, animals and plant communities of British Columbia.

This information is compiled and maintained in a computerized database which provides a centralized and scientific source of information on the status, locations and level of protection of these rare organisms and ecosystems.

The CDC is part of the Registries and Resource Information Division in the B.C. Ministry of Sustainable Resource Management. It is also part of NatureServe, an international organization of cooperating Conservation Data Centres and Natural Heritage Programs all using the same methodology to gather and exchange information on the threatened elements of biodiversity.
