The Data Rescue Intern: Nadia Páez
The Nature Conservancy of Canada-NCC is a non-profit organization for land conservation. In Alberta, the NCC has collected species records data for more than 30 years as part of baseline assessments or monitoring projects. These species records would be of high value to the province of Alberta if they were made publicly available. However, the records are currently , stored on a private NCC database, which is not compatible with the two provincial biodiversity repositories: the "Fisheries and Wildlife Management Information System “(FWMIS)"database and the "Alberta Conservation Information Management System” (ACIMS )" database for plant and invertebrate records.
