Species action plans

Doncaster Biodiversity Action Partnership has produced an audit of those species considered to be of conservation importance in the Borough.

The Species Audit includes nationally threatened species such as the bittern, along with those of regional significance such as the mire pill beetle and those valued for their rarity and strong local identity such as the petty whin. Conservation actions for these species will then be identified and addressed through the Biodiversity Action Planning process.
