Welcome to BARS

BARS is the UK's Biodiversity Action Plan reporting system. It includes national, local and company Biodiversity Action Plans (BAPs) and the Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans of all four countries.

If you have a BARS username and password, login now to access the online data entry application or to generate reports tailored to your organisation or partnership.

If you do not have a BARS username, you can still access most of the information in BARS. Use the menus at the top of this page to learn about progress with Biodiversity Action Plans and country Biodiversity Strategies, the status of BAP species and habitats, or click on the map to find out about conservation action happening in your local area. Alternatively, click here for a more detailed description of the information available in BARS.
