Our habitats and wildlife are under threat from many different pressures but if you own or look after land in Hampshire or the Isle of Wight, we may be able to help you manage it better for wildlife.

We want to work with as many people as possible to achieve our vision for living landscapes and marine areas that are rich in wildlife and valued by everyone. The help that we can offer does depend on your area but just some of the things we may be able to do include giving advice on land management, how to access grant schemes, wildlife gardening, training and how to carry out wildlife projects in your community. The advice we can offer does depend on the resources available in a particular area - use the map below to see the areas where we currently have projects and the specific types of land advice on offer. 

Working with Landowners

Landowners in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight are vital to our cause of creating bigger, better and more joined up wildlife habitats. With your co-operation we can transform the landscape to benefit wildlife and landowners. Depending on your location we may be able to offer help with:

  • Advice on land management and habitat restoration 
  • Expert and impartial advice on applications for funding
  • Occasionally we can provide help with wildlife survey work on your land
  • Talks and events on how you can manage your land more effectively for wildlife

Working with Farmers

Farmers are key to creating a countryside where wildlife can once again thrive. Through sensitive management, you can expand and buffer important wildlife habitats and create links on farmland between them allowing wildlife to move and adapt to climate change. We believe there is a role for every farmer and that creating and managing healthy functioning ecosystems makes good business sense. Depending on your location we may be able to offer help with:

  • Expert and impartial advice on applications for funding
  • Advice on land management and habitat restoration
  • Assist with the challenges of the new nitrate regulations and legislation
  • Workshops on issues such as soil and nutrient management
