Drawing on "Making nature’s city: a science-based framework for building urban biodiversity" by the San Francisco Estuary Institute, this guide identifies the opportunities for sports federations and sport venue owners and operators to develop the seven elements essential for supporting nature in cities. These elements, which are based on the way natural ecosystems work, are: i) habitat patch size; ii) connectivity across the urban landscape; iii) quality of the landscape matrix surrounding a habitat patch; iv) diversity of habitats available; v) native vegetation; vi) special resources like water and nesting locations; vii) and wildlife-friendly management.
