Priority Delivery Areas for Landscape Scale Conservation in the South West (2011-15)

Together, this set of Biodiversity Delivery Areas (BDAs) represents an ambitious vision to establish a network of strategic areas for protecting wildlife across the South west of England. In each county Local Biodiversity Partnerships (LBPs) are helping new collaborations and projects form in the BDAs. If you are interested in finding out more about the work going on in one of BDAs get in touch with your Local Biodiversity partnership to see how you can become involved.
