The Nigerian Conservation Foundation (NCF) is the premier Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) dedicated to nature conservation and sustainable development in Nigeria. Years in action, NCF has maintained the lead in promoting biodiversity conservation, with repository data record ranging from birds to other flora and fauna: The sources of NCF Bird data, are basically from it conservation activities across Nigeria; thus, making NCF an institutional symbol of natural resource management in Nigeria. Through its conservation projects, the foundation is managing unique nature conservation sites, that provide flora and fauna resource materials for biological research and evidence on ecosystem service and stability. NCF has it's National Secretariat located at the Lekki Conservation Centre in Lagos Nigeria. The dataset presently holds 153 records of birds collected between 2018-2019 which consist of 38 families, 67 genera and 75 species.

Dados Sobre o Projeto

National partner’s requirements will be identified and addressed in the implementation process of mentoring the Nigerian Node. NgBIF will consider the national strategy to strengthen biological collections. The mentoring process was carried out by Benin and France GBIF with some Nigerian partners of the project, in order to learn more about governance issues, data publishing processes in the international GBIF platform, and incentives to the publisher. The mentoring processes evaluated contents to be addressed during meetings, the focus and themes, as well as other logistical matters. The National participants were prepared in such a way that the Nigerian Node will replicate these activities and exercises with other national actors, so that the Nigerian Node will have a sustainable team for the Node.In the BID project, the Nigerian node was established but the node still required the experiences of another node to mentor us for smooth running of the NgBIF. Furthermore, the Capacity self-assessments for national biodiversity information facilities clearly indicated that the node lacked the knowledge and capacity to operate fully in bringing national data holders in managing their data, promote incentives for data publishing, lacked feedback mechanism in place for assessment. The strategy for the node and biodiversity information is still without stable funding. BID project is working with partners from South West, South East and North Central without website to support user community,while this project was expanded to a wider region, the North West – Zaria (Ahmadu Bello University).

Título Nigeria Node Mentoring
Identificador CESP2018_012
Financiamento The project was funded by European Union and GBIF.
Descrição da Área de Estudo The current project was extended to a wider audience and trainings were replicated in Southern and Northern Nigeria. These were held at the Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria, Ibadan, Southwestern Nigeria, and Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria in the North West. Participants were drawn from the six eco-geographical zones across Nigeria. Records mobilized for the training were those of herbarium collections and animal data.
Descrição do Design In the research design, specimens were digitized directly into Darwin Core spreadsheet by project team. The data cleaning was done using OpenRefine software. In the process of digitization, Google Maps (GPS finder) was used for Georeferencing of localities on specimen’s records. Validation of taxonomic records was done using Global Names Resolver and other online resources. The goal of the research design for the current project was to ensure the continued availability of Nigeria's biodiversity data via GBIF platform.

Métodos de Amostragem

In the research design, records of birds observed were digitized directly into Darwin Core spreadsheet by the project team. The data cleaning was done using OpenRefine software. In the process of digitization, images of birds sighted were taken with a camera and GPSmap76CSx 2008 / Garmin Etrex2016 was used for Georeferencing of localities. Validation of taxonomic records was done using Global Names Resolver and other online resources.

Área de Estudo Data was collected between the period of 2018-2019

Descrição dos passos do método:

  1. Data collection was based on Field survey, observation and recordings
