Staffordshire Biodiversity Action Plan
The Staffordshire Biodiversity Action Plan (SBAP) has been in place since 1998 in order to co-ordinate conservation efforts in delivering the UK BAP targets at a more local level.
By setting out strategies for conservation projects and providing ecological objectives and targets within a strategic framework, the SBAP proves to be an effective planning tool within the county and has provided the direction needed to form a number of broad ranging biodiversity partnerships and specialised action groups.
This has led to the protection, enhancement and creation of many threatened habitats and provided a framework for effectively monitoring species recovery. 
Working at a landscape level, or ecosystems approach, the aim of the 3rd Edition SBAP is to focus conservation efforts on the areas within the county that will result in optimum benefit for ecological networks, habitats and species and allow for greater resilience to climate change.
