Welcome to UK Biodiversity Website

UK Biodiversity Partnership - The UK Biodiversity Partnership has replaced the UK Biodiversity Group. Click here to find out about the structure of the new partnership and to learn about the work of the groups involved.

The UK Biodiversity website aims to support the implementation of the UK Biodiversity Action Plan and the partnership involved in biodiversity conservation.

From here you can:

  • Find out about UK biodiversity by accessing the local, species and habitat action plan summaries;
  • Look at the contacts page to read about biodiversity groups and search for organisations;
  • Download reports, guidance notes, news and documents from the library;
  • Explore the factors (keywords) affecting the decline of species or habitats.

The website is being redesigned - Let us know what you think and if there is anything you need that you can't locate.
