Richmond’s Biodiversity Action Plan
To conserve Richmond’s biodiversity, we need to reverse the decline of valuable species and habitats. The Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP)(pdf, 2644KB) explains how to promote the conservation of biological diversity and the sustainable use of biological resources.
Richmond’s BAP prioritises habitats and species that are rare, in decline or characteristic of Richmond, and aims to use them to help raise the profile of biodiversity in the borough. The BAP's strategy is based around protecting and celebrating local wildlife and improving the quality of wildlife habitats and the environment in our borough
Our Local Biodiversity Action Plan (LBAP) focuses on the protection, conservation and enhancement of wildlife within our borough and encourages proactive conservation from all sectors of the community. The UK Biodiversity Action Plan's recognition that “biodiversity is ultimately lost or conserved at the local level” is central to the design and the implementation of our LBAP.
