Wildlife Gardening

Whether you see a little Kenilworth Ivy growing on the wall of an urban multistory carpark or a Red Kite flying over the countryside, wildlife is everywhere. 

With 15 million gardens in the UK at a combined size of around 270,000ha, gardens are a vital and significant habitat, providing food, water, shelter, breeding and nesting areas and a way to travel from one place to another.

There are many very simple ways to welcome wildlife whatever the size of land you have in the town or the countryside. Here are some free factsheets you can download to get you started!
