28 February 2014: After little over two months of the launch of the Bhutan Biodiversity Portal on 17th December 2013, by Lyonpo Yeshey Dorji, Minister for Agriculture and Forests, the observations in the Bhutan Biodiversity Portal (www.biodiversity.bt) has raced to 1000!
The observations were contributed by biodiversity enthusiasts from all walks of life and showcased the country’s rich biodiversity as well as the enthusiasm and interest amongst Bhutanese and others in studying, cherishing and conserving it. Currently, there are more than 140 registered users from Bhutan as well as from outside the country, who share their passion, expertise and love for biodiversity on this portal.
The Bhutan Biodiversity Portal- an online repository of information on Bhutan’s Biodiversity, is built through the collective effort of data generators and users. It is currently managed by a consortium of biodiversity agencies within the country and administered by the National Biodiversity Centre.
