Ecology and biodiversity

Ecology is the study of how organisms interact with their environment. An organism is an individual animal, plant, or other individual living thing, including humans!

Biodiversity is the variety of all life on Earth. It includes all animals and plants as well as other organisms and the habitats that support them.​

Coventry City Council helps manage, protect and improve the City's ecology and biodiversity through the planning process. We also work with external partners to help analyse and assess the City's natural environment.​

Our Ecology team works on a number of projects to actively enhance our City's biodiversity, in collaboration with other Council Teams as well as external partners such as Warwickshire Wildlife Trust, our two Universities, and other neighbouring local authoriti​es. 

Coventry features many important species and sites and urban wildlife is everywhere in the city. For more information about species in Coventry, see what residents have recorded on the iNaturalist website, and add your own observations!
