Ecology is the study of all living organisms, their interactions and their habitats. Doncaster Council has a dedicated ecologist who provides advice, guidance and information in order to protect and enhance the biodiversity of the borough.
Local sites represent a comprehensive suite of the Borough's locally and regionally important wildlife and geological sites. These sites are designated to acknowledge and help conserve their special features, and contribute to the wider ecological network including statutory sites (i.e. SSSI', SAC's and SPA's).
