Wildlife issues

Our local wildlife is affected by all kinds of issues in the wider world. Farming, land developments and government policy all impact the well-being of our natural spaces and the plants and animals that depend on them. We keep up-to-date with these changes and have information about how they affect BBOWT nature reserves and the wider countryside.

Habitats and species

We focus our work on protecting and extending the habitats that support wildlife, whether on our land or elsewhere. Without the right habitats, plants and animals have nowhere to go. Our online resources can help you learn more about the habitats and species of the three counties and throughout the UK.

Protecting wildlife

BBOWT gives wildlife a helping hand to ensure it thrives in our three counties. This includes monitoring species, running special projects to support declining species such as water voles, or threatened habitats such as chalk grassland. We also advise other landowners about how to care for habitats and species.

Planning and wildlife

With ever increasing development pressures across our three counties, we have to ensure that wildlife and ecological networks are fully considered within the planning system. BBOWT gives wildlife a voice by responding to strategic planning consultations, by commenting on certain types of planning applications and by providing advice to planners, developers and members of the public.
