CEDaR Online Recording Wildlife Database

Centre for Environmental Data and Recording (CeDAR) Online Recording is a crowdsourced database of wildlife sightings in Northern Ireland, run by National Museums Northern Ireland (NMNI) and NI Environment Agency.

CEDaR facilitates the collection, collation, management and dissemination of biodiversity and geodiversity information for Northern Ireland and its coastal waters.Many individuals and groups supplying the information are members of the Environmental Recorder’s Group.

Verified records of wildlife sightings include the species (Latin and common name), location, spatial reference, number of animal(s) and date of sighting. There are also uploaded photos for some records.

The data supplied through CeDAR is also uploaded to the National Biodiversity Network Gateway, which covers all of UK and Ireland and has a number of downloadable datasets.
