What we do

Wildlife and Wild Places

Wildlife flourishes where it can move through good-quality connected landscape, and in the last year we have worked hard to enhance more than 1,000 hectares of nature reserves and create ‘living landscapes’ where wildlife can thrive and for people to enjoy. A living landscape is not just a big nature reserve, but a mosaic of reserves, farmland, amenity land and built-up areas managed in such a way that wildlife and people can share it.

Inspiring Communities

We inspire individuals and communities to appreciate the wildlife and wild places around them, and to give more people the chance to love being outside. Each year thousands of children and young people have wildlife experience with us, whether that’s close to where they live in towns and cities or while exploring the wild places in Gloucestershire.

Engaging People

Developing wildlife-rich towns that residents will want to protect for years to come is an important part of our work. Public owned green space as well as private gardens are key areas in urban spaces for people and wildlife, and are often lacking in biodiversity, poorly managed or inaccessible. With an increasing appetite from local communities for green areas to be enhanced, Gloucestershire’s cities and towns are prime location for Wild Towns project work.

Natural Solutions

Nature has the power to enrich and improve our lives, and in the last year we have been leading the way on at a county-wide and national level.  

We are working with Forestry England on providing technical advice on ways to improve the quality of river streams, ponds and lakes in the Forest of Dean. Initially this is being done through the development of series of management plans which will propose large and smallscale projects. 

We are helping to prevent flooding in urban areas. The natural flood management usually involves the placement of leaky log jams in the water courses of head water streams. While they don’t impact normal water flow, in the periods of storms and high waters they hold back water temporarily in narrow floodplains in the head water streams. 

Our Building with Nature programme is a benchmark for the design and maintenance of green infrastructure in housing and commercial development and has been designed to support the creation of high-quality green infrastructure throughout the planning and development process. 

Vital Volunteers

Our work is supported by nearly 600 volunteers, whose input is vital whether they are putting up fencing on a nature reserve, creating and tending wildlife gardens or helping in the office. There are many benefits to volunteering, including improved mental and physical health, better career prospects and meeting new people. We value all our volunteers and want to provide opportunities that will be enjoyed and help us to achieve all of our goals – more wildlife, more wild place, more people connected to the natural world.
