Wildlife Corridors

We aim to connect existing wildlife areas and help improve existing areas.

  • Nest boxes - add and maintain nesting sites for wildlife.
  • Hedgehogs - connect gardens to improve habitat and see our Hedgehog page.
  • Protect existing areas - plant and maintain areas that can help improve wildlife.
  • Spread the word about ideas and encourage business to change for the better.

What Can You Do?

  • Rewild your garden - see Keith's blog.
  • Make a nest box or have space for one - the RSPB has information on how to make your own bird box including information on starling boxes. ┬áSee also Sara's and Georgina's blogs about their bird box projects and photos below of the bird boxes that Adrian made.
  • Add a hole under/in your garden wall or fence for hedgehogs etc - see also our Hedgehog page and Mark's blog about rescuing a hedgehog.
  • Plant your garden with insect-friendly plants - The Pollinator Garden and Wildlife Trust are good links.
  • Create safe lodging for frogs, toads and newts in your garden - see the RSPB's how-to guide.
  • Provide a haven for insects in your garden - see the Wildlife Trust's Guide on Taking Action for Insects.
  • Stop using slug pellets, especially as they are now banned in the UK - see Country Living's guide to dealing with slugs.
  • Complain about peat-based compost - peat is a carbon store and should NOT be used.
  • Use your pen (or fingers) - don't underestimate the power of a simple complaint. See Pen Power for our campaigns.

Please check other groups to see what you can do.
