Last Thursday at the KEEN, the Conservation Biology Institute (CBI) held a toast to the public release of DataBasin.org, an online conservation mapping and data sharing system. Presentations from CBI’s partners and friends were given including: Keens President and CEO James Curleigh, The Wilburforce Foundation’s Program officer Joel Clement, innovator and Wikipedia founder Ward Cunningham, Edelman Vice President Henk Campher, and CBI’s Director Dr. James Strittholt.
The event attendees included representatives from non-profit, corporations, universities, small businesses, and local governments.
It was a great time for adults and kids alike. CBI was proud to share a night of information and fun for current and future Data Basin users. If you want to know more about how to get involved, please visit DataBasin.
