Species Conservation Strategies

Hedgehog, Tom MarshallTom Marshall


For the most part, the provision of more and better quality habitats is sufficient to help support the majority of wildlife likely to be found in the city. For some species, such as pollinators, swifts and hedgehogs, there successful conservation requires more targeted action and habitat provisions. In these situations, species conservation strategies need to be created which outline aims and an implementation plan.

There are currently three conservation strategies in place which you can download below:

Each conservation strategy brings together interest groups and individuals to work, drawing on their wealth of enthusiasm and dedication, to work collaboratively towards clear aims:

  1. Identify the location of each species within the city
  2. Increase suitable habitat and access
  3. Raise awareness of each species
  4. Provide simple practical guidelines for the public on how they can help

How can you help?

If you would like to be part of our efforts to conserve these species within the city or just want to find out more then consider joining of our conservation groups via these Facebook groups. Not only will you have access to the latest information but it’s a great opportunity to meet like-minded people. Together we can make a difference.
