Biodiversity: the variety of life on Earth at all its levels

In February 2019 Exeter City Council declared a climate emergency and pledged to become carbon neutral by 2030.

Increasing biodiversity in the city is a great way to reduce carbon and increase benefits for wildlife and people.

Most UK species are in decline and with one in ten at risk of extinction, it is vital that we all do our bit to help wildlife.

We have been working with Devon Wildlife Trust for over ten years on the Exeter Wild City initiative as well as liaising closely on a number of other projects. In conjunction with the Environment Agency and the Wildlife Trust, we are also partnered on the Greening Sowton project, as well as working with community builders, local residents and other businesses to restore and enhance nature across the City.

We are therefore focusing on the areas outlined below to help wildlife across the city.
