Maryland Biodiversity Project (MBP) is cataloging all the living things of Maryland. Our goal is to promote education and conservation by helping to build a vibrant general nature study community. The project was started in June 2012 by Bill Hubick and Jim Brighton. We have already cataloged over 14,500 species, including over 5,800 species with photographs, and feature the work of more than 400 naturalists and photographers. Check out the recent Baltimore Sun article and CNS interview on MBP! (Read about how to help)
