Westminster's Biodiversity Action Plan

Read about how we’re protecting and promoting our biodiversity.

Westminster's Biodiversity Action Plan aims to prevent the decline of - and improve conditions for - species and habitats that are a conservation priority. This is done through the delivery of actions by organisations and individuals that are committed to improving biodiversity in Westminster.  To view the individual habitat and species plans in the 2008 Biodiversity Action Plan, please follow the links at the bottom of this page.
