Biodiversity

Our biodiversity campaign encourages and enables communities, groups, organisations, individuals (or anyone interested) to plant for pollinators, helping to increase biodiversity. This campaign aims to create healthy outdoor spaces for communities to enjoy, enabling people to learn more about biodiversity and reconnect with their environment.

 

What is biodiversity?
Biodiversity is the variety of living things in an area – the more plant and animal species there are, the more biodiverse it is. It is important for the health of both the environment and people, impacting our food, medicine and emotional well-being.


Unfortunately, there has been a dramatic reduction in biodiversity in recent years due to factors such as habitat loss and climate change. The good news is that you can help! Simple actions like planting wildflowers or leaving a log pile in your garden can have big benefits for local wildlife.
