We save wildlife
Wildlife is declining at an alarming rate. In the past fifty years more than 50% of all species across the UK have declined and 15% are at risk of disappearing altogether.
That’s why it’s so important that we look after our wild places and give nature and wildlife a chance of recovery.
We use our data from surveying and monitoring to know what’s happening to species, we work to ensure that there are effective legal frameworks and protections in place as well as careful management of habitat and encouraging others to play their part whether that’s planting for pollinators or reducing pollution.
Across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight we have witnessed the positive impact that targeted intervention and careful management of habitat can have.
Here are some of our recent projects focussed on species that need our help:
