About the policy
We maintain many datasets containing:
- species observation records
- information on ecological communities of Australia.
Successful long-term management and sharing of sensitive ecological data is about:
- risk management
- credibility of the participating organisations
- desire to share the best available data.
Our policy sets out how to identify and manage sensitive ecological data. It relates to species and community data that we own, hold or manage.
Our policy is available for use under a Creative Commons—Attribution licence. Anyone who deals with sensitive ecological data can use our approach.
