The Wildlife Garden Project
Create your own little haven for wildlife
Learn how to provide food, shelter and breeding spots for the wildlife in your garden
Imagine if everybody in the UK made just a few small changes in their garden to help our British wildlife. Think of the giant patchwork of habitats that could be created, all the new homes that could be formed, and all the mouths that could be fed.
At The Wildlife Garden Project CIC, we’re here to equip you with the information and inspiration to create your own little wildlife haven right on your doorstep.
What have you spotted?
A huge part of the joy of wildlife gardening is watching and learning about all the wildlife that visits your patch. Find out more about some of the UK’s common garden visitors and learn about what they get up to in your garden.
Why be a wildlife gardener?
Vital habitats across the world are being destroyed at a terrifying rate. We can provide much needed help by donating money to conservation charities, signing petitions to create marine reserves, or adopting an endangered animal. But it is so easy to do so much more, because conservation can start at home.
Imagine the difference you could make if you took a few small steps towards making your garden just a little bit more wildlife friendly. Now think of all the space that our gardens cover across the UK, and imagine just how much more habitat could be created for our struggling native species if everyone took these steps.
Getting out in your garden is great for wildlife, but also for you! It can keep you fit and you’ll get the pleasure of enjoying all those new creatures that make your wildlife garden their home!
