About the Dutch Caribbean Biodiversity Database

The Dutch Caribbean Biodiversity Database (DCBD) supplies a central repository for all biodiversity related research and monitoring data and information from the Dutch Caribbean. The goal of the DCBD is to guarantee long-term data access and availability, support nature management and facilitate international reporting obligations.

To supply the nature conservation organisations on the islands with valuable tools to prioritise and fine-tune conservation efforts ,a user-friendly and appealing database that hosts an extensive number of datasets on key conservation species, such as sea turtles, flamingos, tropicbirds, parrots, butterflies and many more, a GIS–based map functionality and a literature archive are included in the DCBD. Since no online library exists with the focus on the Dutch Caribbean, the DCBD strives to provide that for the NGOs on the islands. Here all reports, journal articles and other documents concerning biodiversity research and monitoring, education and outreach, etc. is gathered and users can search the database for any information they need.
