Will you help save Britain’s wildlife?
The biggest challenge for wild animals today is finding a safe place to live. As cities expand and farming intensifies, green spaces are rapidly disappearing, leaving animals with fewer places to inhabit. Wildlife that was once common in Britain is now sadly declining.
But we can change that. From hedgehogs and badgers to bees and bats, many animals can thrive in developed areas in close proximity to people. With just a few simple actions, our gardens can be havens for wildlife.
In the UK, at least ten native mammals are classified as threatened and face a high risk of extinction.
There are lots of small changes we can make that have a big impact, from making a feeding station for hedgehogs to building a small pond for amphibians. Such simple actions in our gardens can give even the most threatened species the chance of survival. It’s beneficial for us to have wildlife in our garden too, and I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s wonderful to see wildlife sharing our spaces.
Your garden might be quite wildlife friendly already, or you might not know where to start. So we’ve created a useful kit so you can get started making your garden more wildlife friendly.
When you make a donation of £10 or more, we’ll send your free Wildlife Friendly Garden Kit, with tips and guides on how to make your garden a wildlife haven.
Your kit includes a:
- wildflower seed card to kickstart your wildlife friendly garden
- garden wildlife guide on the importance of your garden to wildlife and the species you’re likely to see
- garden wildlife planner of monthly wildlife friendly activities all year round
- garden wildlife poster with 12 top tips to make your garden more wildlife-friendly
