The project "Open biodiversity data: serving nature conservation in Ukraine" is supported by the Rufford Foundation and is aimed on collecting data on biodiversity in Ukraine by specialists of the Ukrainian Nature Conservation Group (UNCG) for publication in GBIF. The project became especially relevant in connection with the invasion of Russian troops into Ukraine, which led to many threats to rare species in different parts of Ukraine.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 13,309 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.

The dataset covers entire territory of Ukraine.
|Bounding Coordinates||South West [44.371, 22.083], North East [52.376, 40.166]|
The dataset includes findings of animals (Animalia), fungi (Fungi) and plants (Plantae).
|Kingdom||Animalia, Fungi, Plantae|
|Phylum||Tracheophyta, Ascomycota, Arthropoda, Annelida, Basidiomycota, Chordata, Mollusca|
The results of the project will be a backbone for establishment of new protected areas and Emerald Network sites, as well as for development of management plans for already existing protected areas. As a result, we will prepare documents for all the important sites identified and provide them directly to the Ministry of Environmental Protection of Ukraine. Our gathered data on the occurrences of protected species will facilitate the establishment of new protected areas.
