Welcome to the Halton Peel BioDiversity Network

Halton Peel Biodiversity Network, or HPBDN, is an environmental non-government organization whose goal is to mainstream the benefits of biodiversity and raise awareness of the Canadian Biodiversity Network (CBD).  The United Nations declared 2011 to 2020 the Decade on Biodiversity which calls upon government and citizens alike to implement strategies and get involved in the rapidly depleting biodiversity across the globe. HPBDN strives towards accomplishing this to allow biodiversity to restore itself through a variety of facets. 
HPBDN focuses on three methods of mainstreaming biodiversity: education, communication and facilitation. We focus on these methods which are outlined in our six targets.
1. Share knowledge for community action and projects
2. Enable sustained efforts to mainstream biodiversity
3. Create a forum for dialogue and action for Halton-Peel groups and stakeholders
4. Enable residents and stakeholders to understand and contribute to international, national and provincial efforts for biodiversity
5. Create a mechanism to have ongoing capacity building for biodiversity, especially as it relates to the 10 year plan of work, the Aichi Targets and the Decade on Biological Diversity
6. Strive to contribute to the Provincial, National and International efforts for biodiversity from the unique Halton-Peel perspective
