Helping Nature on Your Patch

Our guidance to help your support nature in your area

Increasing biodiversity on a local scale
We know nature is in trouble - since 1970 UK species have declined by about 19% on average, and nearly 1 in 6 species are now threatened with extinction...but you can help! Whether your patch is a little garden, a village green or a 100 hectare estate, there are a wide range of actions you can take to help your local wildlife populations.

Individuals and groups can:
1) Discover
 what habitats and wildlife they have on their patch,
2) Protect
 what is of value,
3) Create
 new habitats that have biodiversity value, and
4) Manage these areas for wildlife.
