Biodiversity and conservation
More and more people are realising that the quality of our everyday lives is linked to the health of our local natural environment.
In Anglesey we have in our local communities - our towns, villages, coast and countryside - a natural environment that we both need to look after and promote its well-being in future years, so we and our children can benefit from the beauty of nature we have on this island.
Human activity is causing the Earth’s biodiversity to be lost at a greatly accelerated rate. These losses impoverish us all and damage life support systems we rely on everyday.
In this section
Biodiversity is about the natural variety of life we have on earth, the native animals and plants that live around us, and the habitats in which they live.
The UK’s biodiversity is in decline. Last century we lost a 100 species of plants and animals.
We encounter wildlife in our daily lives.
Green school schemes.
You can act on your own, volunteer or form a group of people for your own project(s).
While habitat loss remains the greatest risk to wildlife other threats exist that can severely degrade existing habitats and reduce wildlife.
This leaflet covers issues relating to areas of contractors’ work, but it’s also handy for the public in general.
