OS Codepoint also does not include the postcodes for the Isle of Man
and the channel islands.
Is there an open data source for theses postcodes?

If you save the living environment, the biodiversity that we have left,
you will also automatically save the physical environment, too. But If
you only save the physical environment, you will ultimately lose both.

1) Don’t drive species to extinction

2) Don’t destroy a habitat that species rely on.

3) Don’t change the climate in ways that will result in the above.
