The black grouse BAP in Wales

A Welsh Black Grouse Biodiversity Action Plan Steering Group has been formed to tackle the key problems facing black grouse in Wales. A Welsh Black Grouse Species Action Plan (SAP) is being prepared, which will outline a framework to facilitate co-ordination of conservation action for black grouse.

The secretariat to the Wales black grouse BAP is the RSPB. For more information, contact Chris Mellenchip, Maes-y-Ffynnon, Penrhosgarnedd, Bangor, Gwynedd LL57 2DW. Tel: 01248 363800.

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. The Welsh population of black grouse in largely covered by four LBAPs.
