Thinking about biodiversity
Biodiversity is the total variety of life on earth. It includes all genes, plant and animal species, and the ecosystems of which they are part; biodiversity is a fundamental part of our heritage. HLF has funded thousands of projects conserving important habitats and species in the UK, as well as projects helping people to participate in and learn more about the natural world.
Biodiversity can be part of projects conserving habitats and species, projects focusing on biological information and improving our understanding of natural heritage, as well as wider conservation projects. Other types of heritage projects can also take into account opportunities for maximising biodiversity.
