BAP species associated with ponds
There are 80 or so pond species that are of national priority for conservation action under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP).
You can download a list of the Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) priority species associated with ponds in England and in Wales.
You can get more information about these BAP species and also find out which of them have been recorded near you using our web tool, that is available through the Million Ponds section of this website.
And, why not become part of our Million Ponds Project by creating new clean water ponds that will help to attract and protect BAP species which live near you.
