Local Biodiversity Action Plans
The primary purpose of LBAPs is to focus resources through local partnerships to implement conservation action for the priority habitats and species and locally important wildlife and sites. The content of the LBAPs are informed and guided by national priorities and targets, but seek to reflect the values of local people and provide a focus for local initiatives.
