Unique map of Denmark to help preserve biodiversity

Nature plan

The Danish Minister for the Environment Kirsten Brosbøl has put forward "Naturplan Danmark" – the government's plan for how the Danish nature should develop in the future. A central purpose is to stop the decline in biodiversity. Together with the plan, a biodiversity map of Denmark is also launched. It is a unique mapping of the areas that can be prioritised in a future effort to preserve biodiversity.

The map has been made by the Nature Agency, DCE - Danish Centre for Environment and Energy, Aarhus University and the Center for Macroøkologi, Evolution and Climate, University of Copenhagen.
