Successful implementation of the BAP can only be achieved with the active participation of many partners. The collaboration and support of these partners enables us to undertake the important work of protecting species and habitats throughout Essex in a large number of projects and with a high profile. We recognise and appreciate the considerable efforts our partners have made in the cause of protecting and enhancing biodiversity and look forward to welcoming new partners in the future.
