Biodiversity - It's Our Nature

NPT Biodiversity It's Our Nature

From the tiny toadstool to our wise old oak, Biodiversity is all living things - and this includes us!

2011-2020 has been declared the International Decade on Biodiversity by the United Nations. It’s our chance to get involved in our nature. You can do this in many ways, just click through to the key sections below. 

Biodiversity in Planning

A downloadable leaflet of the advice provided by the Biodiversity in Planning webpages is now available.  The webpages and the leaflet explains the requirements of biodiversity in the planning process and what to do about them.  It explains everything from answering the biodiversity questions on the planning application form through to ideas for mitigation.  So if you are considering submitting a planning application take a look!

Wildlife Walks

We now have 9 wildlife walks in the county so why not get out and be a wildlife explorer with our handy leaflets.  Take a look at the Wildlife Walk page for some ideas of where to start exploring. URGENT: Due to current problems in a couple of sections of the Drumau Mountain route it is not advisable to attempt to walk the route as currently presented.  Please visit the Wildlife Walks page for further detail.  

Education packs

These packs are designed to help teachers nurture an understanding and an appreciation of our natural environment whilst also following the national curriculum. Take a look at the Biodiversity in Education pages for further information.

Current Biodiversity News

The Welsh Government is currently consulting on a new approach to the environment, including biodiversity, that is based on an ecosystems approach.  For more information or to comment on the consultation visit the Welsh Government Website.

The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity report aims to assign monetary values to the services that biodiversity usually provides free of charge. You can read more about this at the Bank of Natural Capital website.
