Index of biodiversity surveys for assessments fact sheet

Fact sheet
The Index of Biodiversity Surveys for Assessments (IBSA) is a new project by the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation.
Last updated:

It will capture biodiversity data from land-based biodiversity field surveys that support assessments under the Environmental Protection Act 1986 (EP Act), consolidate this data, and provide a platform to make it publicly available.

Once data has been used for assessment purposes, the department will make basic information for each dataset available online.

Data owners will have control over how accessible the complete datasets are.
