Abstract: The Norwegian Biodiversity Information Centre is a national source of information on biodiversity. The organisations main function is to supply the public with updated and accessible information on Norwegian species and ecosystems. Approximately 40 000 species of animals, plants and other organisms are known to be present in Norway. However, the total number probably exceeds 60 000, and the survival of each and every one depends on the existence of specific habitats and ecosystems. The decision to establish the Norwegian Biodiversity Information Centre (NBIC) was approved in a parliamentary resolution by the Norwegian national assembly in 2003. NBIC became operational in January 2005. As a national source of information the goal of NBIC is to make currently available information on biodiversity accessible to everyone who has access to the Internet. The information will be found at our web site ( NBIC is also making an effort to increase the focus on biodiversity and raise public awareness about it. The objective is to provide the public debate with up-to-date, correct information. This will help to make the issue of biodiversity an important factor in decision-making processes. Putting biodiversity on the agenda implies that we must place emphasis on active, high-quality communication with governmental institutions, media and society as a whole.
