Default Biodiversity Action...a plan.

Every community should consider a plan to promote not only awareness in the general public about the importance of maintaining biodiversity, but also what actions said community will need to take.

An example is considered in The Hearldsburg Tribune

Biodiversity Action Plan released
Aim is to retain richness of county’s natural world

“In some ways,” she added, “the conversations between scientists, land managers, conservation planners, and others that occurred along the way were just as important as the final report as we will be working together to implement the plan.”

According to the summary, the county is in real need of long-term, steadily funded and science driven program to accomplish biodiversity preservation by setting measurable goals for wildlife and habitat recovery, track real time threats to the ecosystem and prioritize conservation actions to sustain local biodiversity
A pdf of plan,pictures, maps, charts...etc.

This report was encouraging in many ways and illustrated some well thought out plans. I liked that they were focusing upon fragmentation of habitat and planned to create corridors to connect areas.

Another good find, Gloria.

Thanks for reading. I'm trying to get a feel for what makes a good topic. Since I live in the city my focus may be too urban but I feel that aspect of ecology has been slow to evolve. We have these huge urban centers still sprawling along both the eastern and western coast and all around the great lakes. Planning for biodiversity in cities and suburbs is beginning to get a foothold.
I'm on a hunt for other plans from north america. Here is a pdf with some general information to take into account when planning action.

Greenspace
Urban green space includes everything in cities that has vegetation. Collectively it is sometimes referred
to as “Green infrastructure”, encompassing the entire working landscape in cities that serve roles such as
improving air quality, flood protection and pollution control (Girling and Kellett, 2005).
