The way we look after local wildlife is changing. We’re thinking big.
The Trust has managed nature reserves, right across the three counties, for many years.
Now we’re connecting these reserves together.
We’re working with other land owners and managers, to create ‘joined up’ landscapes that are more valuable for wildlife.
Living Landscapes create space for mammals to move about and between, places for wild flower seeds to settle and grow, birds to hunt and butterflies to find nectar.
Living Landscapes are good for people too. A healthy environment aids food production and gives us clean air and water. It gives us places to explore and enjoy.
Creating Living Landscapes takes a lot of time, resource, co-operation and goodwill to achieve.
So, this is where the Trust will focus most of its energy for years to come, because we believe it will pay the biggest dividends for the wildlife we all care about.
Bigger, better, more joined up
We are working on four priority Living Landscapes at
as well as in five other areas.
This way of working means that the Wildlife Trust can achieve so much more for wildlife than simply by trying to keep small populations going on scattered pockets of land.
See a map showing our Living Landscape area.
Working with others
To stitch habitats back together, we work with farmers and other land managers, supporting and offering advice about managing land in a nature- friendly way.
We'd love you to be involved too.
Small changes to the way farmland and other fragments of land are managed can make a big difference to wildlife. We always work with local communities to enable people to get closer to their local wildlife in a many different ways.
