The Perth Biodiversity Project (PBP) is a local government initiative subscribed to by 32 Perth Metropolitan Region Local Governments and several peri-urban Local Governments. The project is supported by the Western Australian Local Government Association (WALGA) and the Western Australian Government (NRM program) through the Department of Planning/Western Australian Planning Commission.
