Maryland Biodiversity Project (MBP) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused on cataloging all the living things of Maryland. Our goal is to promote education and conservation by helping to build a vibrant nature study community. The project was started in June 2012 by Bill Hubick and Jim Brighton. We have already cataloged over 16,000 species, including over 7,000 species with photographs, and feature the work of more than 500 naturalists and photographers.
