Edinburgh Biodiversity action plan
Our Biodiversity action plan shows which local nature conservation priorities we work on. You can download this information below.
We have a full list of all rare species in the city, which can be downloaded below. This list is produced by the Wildlife Information Centre and is based on records provided by expert volunteers.
We encourage the use of swift bricks in new buildings. This helps to replace nests which are lost in older buildings. Guidance on how to do this can be downloaded below.
