Wales Biodiversity Partnership

Species Expert Group

The WBP Species Expert Group acts as a single point of contact for any species and/ or species habitat queries from the Ecosystem Groups. It is made up of representatives from each of the main taxonomic groups (mammals, birds, herptiles, fish, invertebrates, vascular plants, lower plants), including statutory agency and environmental NGO specialists. The group has the following primary roles:

  1. To provide, either directly or via seeking information elsewhere, relevant habitat management advice for particular species or groups of species.
  2. Identify habitat/site priorities and integrate species actions across taxa and, maintain a list of priority actions for implementation by Ecosystem Groups and other delivery bodies.

If you would like to submit a biodiversity-related or ecosystem approach evidence gap to this group please contact us
