The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) was established in 2001 as an international organization dedicated to promoting open access to biodiversity data. It emerged as a collaborative effort among governments, research institutions, and other stakeholders who recognized the need for a global network to facilitate the sharing and integration of biodiversity information. Since its inception, GBIF has played a crucial role in advancing our understanding of global biodiversity. By providing a platform for researchers, scientists, and institutions to share their data, GBIF has helped foster collaborations, promote scientific discoveries, and support evidence-based decision-making in biodiversity conservation. Over the years, GBIF has grown into a global network of participants from more than 100 countries, including governments, museums, universities, and NGOs. Together, they contribute their data and expertise to create a comprehensive and accessible knowledge resource on Earth’s biodiversity. GBIF continues to play a vital role in facilitating data sharing, capacity building, and collaboration across borders. By promoting open access to biodiversity information, GBIF strives to enhance our understanding of the natural world, support conservation efforts, and address pressing environmental challenges.
