How to encourage wildlife in your local community

There's lots of ways that you can protect and encourage wildlife in their local area. Whether there's an area of land close to you, a bit of ground at your local community centre, library or school, with some work,  these could be turned into wildlife havens and great places for the community to enjoy.

The number of wildlife rich areas have dramatically declined over the past couple of decades. This has often been the result of residential and commercial developments.

By creating a structure regardless of size (even on a small area of land), communities will play an important role in the protection of the  wildlife around them.
