Wild Park 2020

We launched our Biodiversity Action Plan, ‘Wild Park 2020’, in 2014.

Focused on the five Wild Challenges, Wild Park 2020 set out our strategy for meeting important biodiversity commitments so that the natural heritage within the National Park can thrive, be enjoyed by all and continue to provide essential ecological services. Download a copy of the Wild Park 2020 document below.

Wild Park 2020 has recently been refreshed to better align our focus on our newly adopted vision for conservation in the National Park set out in our National Park Partnership Plan 2018-23.

View Wild Park 2020 – our previous Biodiversity Action Plan.

Our current Wild Park programme is now focused on four Key Environmental Threats that negatively impact our nature and landscapes. By tackling these threats, we can better protect and enhance the natural habitats and ecosystems needed to support our Wild Challenges.

The wild challenges

The rich flora and fauna of the Park includes over 600 species considered to be of regional, national or international significance.

Our previous Biodiversity Action Plan, Wild Park 2020, focussed action on five areas, known as ‘Our Wild Challenges’:

  1. Red squirrel 
  2. Invasive non-native species
  3. Mountain bogs 
  4. Black grouse
  5. Woodland habitat networks
