Will you help save Britain’s wildlife?
The biggest challenge for wild animals today is finding safe places to live. As cities expand and farming intensifies, green spaces are rapidly disappearing, leaving animals with fewer places to inhabit. British wildlife is dramatically declining and needs our help now more than ever.
Despite this, many animals, from hedgehogs and badgers to bees and bats, can thrive in developed areas in close proximity to people. Our gardens can act as havens for wildlife, providing both food and shelter. Wildlife that was once common in Britain is now sadly declining, but there is something we can do. We can make our gardens as wildlife friendly as possible, so that wild animals have a greater chance of survival.
In the UK, at least ten native mammals are classified as threatened and face a high risk of extinction.
We must change this. 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 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.
