WCMC is a UK charity that promotes for public benefit the conservation, protection, enhancement and support of nature and natural resources worldwide. We do this by collecting, storing, processing, analysing, interpreting and sharing data that increases our knowledge and understanding of biodiversity and the conservation of nature. Good data is the foundation of informed decision-making and we work with many partners to help them develop their knowledge and capacity to make good decisions.
We collaborate with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) within the UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC).
