Action for wildlife in the Peak District is achieved by the landowners, land-managers and individuals who live and work here. The Biodiversity Action Plan is being co-ordinated by the Peak District Biodiversity Partnership.
The partnership produced the first Peak District Biodiversity Action Plan 2001-2010 (6.44MB) to set out what we hoped to achieve, and produced reviews of progress in 2007 (2.9MB) and 2010 (2.8MB). Overall the picture was one of good progress on conserving and enhancing existing habitats, but with much less progress on the creation of new habitat. Many species such as moorland birds have continued to thrive, but significant concerns remain about the continuing declines of other species including farmland waders (Lapwing, Snipe and Curlew), Twite and White-clawed Crayfish.
In the light of experience over the last 10 years, a new Peak District Biodiversity Action Plan 2011-2020 has been produced as an online Plan through these webpages.
