North Wales Environmental Information Service (Cofnod)

Cofnod is one of four Local Records Centres (LRCs) in Wales and forms part of the first national network of LRCs anywhere in the UK. Their name, which means ‘a record’ in Welsh, was chosen to reflect the importance of observing and recording wildlife, with the creation of a record being the starting point for all the data they hold. They task themselves with bringing together all these individual records into a centralised database, allowing them to have better knowledge of the environment in which we live.
