Help map nature’s recovery
The Wildlife Trusts are creating a map of areas across the UK where people want to see nature recover, and they need your help! Do you know of a green space near you that could provide a home to wildlife, help soak up carbon, or even help protect your community from extreme weather events like flooding? By adding a location to the map, you can help us to show the wealth of treasured sites across the UK – places which could one day benefit from protections for nature. Drop a pin in the map to highlight a site near you, here.
