Life on Earth is astonishingly diverse, with the total number of living species estimated somewhere between a staggering 5 and 30 million. With the rate of species extinction in excess of 1,000 times the ‘natural’ rate, conservation efforts for the world’s mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, fish, invertebrates, fungi, plants and algae, as well as numerous other organisms, have never been more vital.

B-Lines are an imaginative and beautiful solution to the problem of the loss of flowers and pollinators. The B-Lines are a series of ‘insect pathways’ running through our countryside and towns, along which we are restoring and creating a series of wildflower-rich habitat stepping stones. They link existing wildlife areas together, creating a network, like a railway, that will weave across the British landscape. This will provide large areas of brand new habitat benefiting bees and butterflies– but also a host of other wildlife.

Biodiversity in Powys

The landscape and wildlife are part of an ecosystem that provide us with fresh water, food and fuel as well as income from tourism and opportunities for leisure, recreation and education. As a local authority our activities have a direct impact on species and habitats, such as managing publicly-owned land, planning for local housing and maintaining and improving the road network. So we have a significant role to play in conserving biodiversity. As well as continually improving the way we manage work that affects species and habitats, we are also actively involved in partnership projects. This includes those designed to achieve targets in the Powys Local Biodiversity Action Plan and by supporting communities as part of the Powys Environmental Partnership (PEP). PEP works to enhance the environment for the people of Powys as outlined in the One Powys Plan.
