Swansea Council discussed the plan when members met on March 21.

They agreed to adopt the Section 6 Biodiversity Duty Action Plan; it'll help the council meet its duties under the Environment (Wales) Act 2016.

It'll also contribute to our aim to help make the organisation net zero by 2030 and the city net zero by 2050.

David Hopkins, the council's joint deputy leader and cabinet member for corporate services and performance, said: "This action plan will be a key driver in our endeavours to maintain and enhance biodiversity and to contribute to Welsh Government targets for nature recovery.

"We're facing a climate and nature emergency, but we can change this by putting nature into recovery."

The actions include helping to embed biodiversity in decision-making, safeguarding key species and habitats, and restoring degraded habitats.

The council is already doing a lot to help wildlife, such as planting trees, boosting the number of wildflowers in parks and verges, making the city greener, working with schools, putting up bird boxes and looking after nature reserves and wildlife sites.

A key corporate wellbeing objective in the council's corporate plan is to deliver on climate change and nature recovery.
