Make your garden a haven for wildlife

Gardens are increasingly important spaces for wildlife as habitats in the wider countryside shrink and fragment, and climate change takes its toll. There are around 16 million gardens in the UK; the way they are managed can make a big difference to wildlife. Although each garden on its own may be small, together they form a patchwork linking green spaces in our towns with nature reserves and the wider countryside. Species like hedgehogs, sparrows and song thrushes are all declining, but if we manage our gardens sympathetically for wildlife these creatures and many more will feel the benefits.
