Caerphilly Biodiversity Partnership

The Caerphilly Biodiversity Partnership are an enthusiastic and committed group of professionals and volunteers working together to look after our local biodiversity. Together they have produced a Local Biodiversity Action Plan for Caerphilly county borough.

There are action plans for 10 different habitats including wetlands, woodlands, commons and post-industrial land, and 53 species plans for wildlife, such as the dormouse, great-crested newt, grass snake and bluebell. The Plan was launched in June 2002 and the Partnership has started to implement the action plans. The Action Plan is currently undergoing a review by the Caerphilly Biodiversity Partnership, updating actions and incorporating new species and habitats declared of principal importance in Wales by the Welsh Assembly Government. Once the plans have been reviewed they will be added to the BARS website once completed.

Want to help?

You can join the partnership as an individual or as a representative from a group. No qualifications are necessary just a love of wildlife! There are quarterly evening meetings, events, surveys and training days (how to spot a water vole, for example). You can also help us on our conservation days where we look after our special places for wildlife. You don’t have to be a member of the partnership - just let us know you are coming so we can bring enough equipment! For more information contact us.
