Biodiversity

SWLEN facilitates the preservation of local biodiversity, promoting the conservation and improvement of the natural environment and chairs the Richmond Biodiversity Partnership, which brings together organisations and individuals to conserve and enhance biodiversity in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.

The Partnership was set up in 1997 as a subgroup of Richmond’s LA21 Group, to identify and protect wildlife habitats and species through the creation and overseeing the implementation of a Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP)
