Protecting the wider countryside
Nature conservation traditionally focused on protecting specific sites, but wildlife is everywhere and needs to move freely through the countryside. Nature reserves are special places but they are not enough; we also need to think of the landscape as a whole – as a Living Landscape.
A partnership approach to nature conservation
Our nature conservation work is helping to put wildlife back on the map outside our protected nature reserves and with the help of a wide range of partners and communities.
Providing a voice for wildlife
We engage proactively in the planning process to prevent negative impacts on wildlife and advocate design that benefits wildlife.
