Zoo BAPs: How to create a plan for native wildlife on your site

New guidelines available on creating Biodiversity Action Plans for the native species which inhabit zoo and aquarium sites. 

Natasha Hambly, Dr Andrew Marshall and the Native Species Working Group have worked together to produce this 2-page guidance document, explaining how a Biodiversity Action Plan can be used as an easy tool to conserve the native wildlife living on your site.

The guide provides advice on the process to use in assessing your key species and habitats, and in creating your targets. It also includes links to other useful documents and websites, and complements the NSWG's guide to Managing Your Site for Native Species. Both of these documents are available on the NSWG Resources Page.
