About Us

Biodiversity South West was formed in 1994 (under its original name of the South West Biodiversity Partnership).

Our vision is "to have landscapes and water bodies, coasts and seas, towns and cities where wild species and habitats are part of healthy functioning ecosystems; where we nurture, treasure and enhance our biodiversity, and where biodiversity is a natural consideration of policies and decisions, and in society as a whole".

Our partnership includes representatives from Government, local authorities, statutory agencies, non-government organisations and local record centres.
