Welcome to the old website for the South East Wales Biodiversity Records Centre (SEWBReC).

SEWBReC is the second Local Biological Records Centre (or LRC) in Wales. We are a not-for-profit organisation whose aims are to make appropriate local biodiversity information available to those who need it to help ensure that decisions which may affect biodiversity in the area are made in the light of best available knowledge. SEWBReC provides a mechanism for collating, sharing and utilising the wealth of biological data and knowledge which exists in Glamorgan and Gwent. The money that comes into the centre from providing services to its partners will be used to manage the data that it holds, and to support the community of amateur naturalists who supply those records to it.

We went live in August 2005, and are now providing a wide range of data services to our partner organisations including; inventories, summaries, distribution maps, and contextual information for species, habitats and sites. This site will provide information on events and training in the region as well as providing links to other websites of local interest and providing contact information.
