Creating ponds for priority species under the UK’s Biodiversity Action Plan
Out of the 5,000 ponds which will be created in the first phase of the Million Ponds Project, around one fifth will be targeted to support some of the 100 or so pond species that are national priority for conservation action under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP).
You can download the list of the BAP species associated with ponds for England and for Wales.

Help us to raise funds to create ponds for endangered freshwater plants and animals. So far we have created over 1000 ponds with a grant from Biffa Award. Please help us continue our work and donate to support the creation of new, clean ponds for wildlife.
