Oregon Biodiversity Information Center wins 2013 Natureserve Network Collaboration Award

The Institute for Natural Resources' (INR) Oregon Biodiversity Information Center (ORBIC) received the 2013 Network Collaboration Award last night at the NatureServe network's annual Biodiversity Without Boundaries conference in Baltimore.

The honor recognizes ORBIC's leadership in engaging network members in efforts to develop innovative conservation data and information. ORBIC is one of three members of the NatureServe network whose achievements earned the recognition from their peers this year.

"This award recognizes the steady stream of energy and innovation that ORBIC brings to the network," said Mary Klein, president and CEO of NatureServe. "They consistently identify opportunities to address cross-cutting issues and develop pragmatic solutions through inventive methods and partnerships."

The award cites four examples of diverse collaborations that ORBIC initiated or provided leadership to:

  • the U.S. Geological Survey to develop a national database of conservation lands
  • the National Academy of Sciences 's Transportation Research Board (TRB) project to link conservation planning with transportation planning
  • a NatureServe network-based consortium to create consistent methods and standards for species distribution modeling
  • a second network-based effort to manage the database information team for iMapInvasives

"Oregon always works to try to implement new ideas, and ORBIC is fortunate to have experienced and dedicated staff willing to try new things," said Jimmy

Kagan, director of ORBIC. " However, the ability to work with other programs across the country, and take advantage of their expertise and innovations with NatureServe's support, has become a major reason for our recent successes."

ORBIC's persistence, cooperation, and coordination over several years enlisted more than 20 network members as state data stewards for the Protected Areas Database of the United States (PAD-US). Network engagements o
