BAP partners programme
Now in its fifth phase, our biodiversity action plan (BAP) partners programme provides funding to projects carried out by wildlife organisations which will conserve and enhance biodiversity across our region.
Running since 1998, the programme has led to some notable conservation successes and has helped to contribute to the goal of conserving and enhancing wildlife in our region.
We decided that funding expert conservation organisations to carry out biodiversity work was a good way of achieving effective outcomes on the ground that would stand the test of time.
Previous phases of the Partners Programme focused on work for species and habitats of importance within the UK but has subsquently broadened to include a focus on water quality and ecology issues.
The programme continues to fund biodiversity projects which focus on species or survey work; habitat creation or restoration work; or more strategic work focused on enhancing existing biodiversity, water quality or promoting wider conservation.
