Nature in Flintshire

Local Nature Partnership
Flintshire County Council coordinates the Local Nature Partnership (North East Wales Biodiversity Network).  The North East Wales Biodiversity Network was formed in October 2009.  It brings together local biodiversity partnerships that had existed in the counties of Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham.  It is made up of a number of organisations including Conwy, Denbighshire, Wrexham and Flintshire local authorities, Natural Resources Wales, North Wales Wildlife Trust, RSPB, Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, the North Wales trunk Road Agency, British association of shooting and conservation, Butterfly conservation, Chester Zoo, Clwyd Badger Group, Keep Wales Tidy, Wild Ground, Cofnod (the North Wales Environmental Record Centre) businesses and independent recorders and consultants.  The broad aim of the network is to conserve, protect and enhance biodiversity for current and future generations. Collaboration are seen as being important to the partnership alongside other objectives that include raising awareness and the promotion of biodiversity and identifying local priorities to deliver local nature targets.  Follow us for the latest news and events across north east wales.
