This chapter focuses on the changes introduced in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan (UKBAP). It examines the changing approach to biodiversity conservation in the country and explores the extent of such approaches to reflexivity in the plan. The chapter adopts an empirical approach to surveying the existing conditions by analyzing documents and interviewing key entities from governmental and non-governmental organizations. The UK has responded to the Convention on Biological Diversity by implementing the UKBAP between 1994 and 1996. The original UKBAP proposed fifty-nine steps demonstrating a more holistic approach to conserving the biodiversity of the country. The UKBAP is a document, partnership, and process depending on three main activities to achieve its objectives, and has also undergone significant changes from its original form in terms of structure and process.
