Together with the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology and other partners, we have launched a ‘Biodiversity Toolkit’ to help housing providers and residents support more wildlife on their estates.
It provides a guide on some of the best ways to improve the quality of green spaces for wildlife while involving residents in key decision making.
We hope you find it useful!
This project was funded by Natural Environmental Research Council grant NE/ S013989/1.
