The Isle of Wight Biodiversity Partnership consists of 13 members of local and national organisations (listed in the column to the right). The BAP Partnership meets several times a year. See here for the minutes of the Steering Committee meetings.

Vision, aims and objectives of the partnership
The Island should be a place where plants, animals and habitats are conserved and enhanced, both for their own sake and as an integral part of our quality of life.
The principal aim of the Isle of Wight LBAP partnership, in line with national guidance, is to maintain, restore and, where feasible, re-create the nationally and locally important priority habitats we possess and the species which depend upon them.
