Snowdonia National Park is synonymous with extensive areas of windswept uplands and jagged peaks but also has a variety of inspiring natural and semi-natural habitats. Many of these, along with its species, are of international importance and are found nowhere else in the world.
A number of projects have come out of Snowdonia’s Local Biodiversity Action Plan (Bioamrywiaeth yn Eryri) addressing species conservation, habitat enhancement and awareness-raising, e.g. a newsletter for volunteers is produced every quarter, species surveys for green woodpecker and water voles have been carried out and several riparian habitat projects have been implemented.
Snowdonia National Park also works with and alongside numerous other organisations and individuals to further the conservation of its unique Biodiversity, e.g. the North West Wales Riparian Mammals Group and Gwynedd Sustainable Angling initiatives.
