LBP logoLBP's partners

A large number of organisations focus in part or in whole on biodiversity in London, some of which are LBP partners.

LBP's partner organisations work together, pooling resources, experience and know-how, to have a greater impact than is possible working alone.

LBP also supports boroughs and other organisations who have their own biodiversity action plans.
