PROJECTS TO ENHANCE

BIODIVERSITY.

Creating new wetland habitats

Creating new wetland habitats.

At Wildacres Nature Reserve our aim is to protect and enhance the 17.5 acres of land as an optimum native species habitat.

 

This involves the creating of new wetland habitats which are incredibly species rich when established.

Hedgerow planting and management.

As we have one of the lowest rates of native deciduous forest cover in Europe. Our wonderful hedgerows are now even more important, as a vital habitat for our under threat native wildlife.

 

At Wildacres we are planting lots of new native wildlife focused hedgerow and managing existing hedgerow with that same wildlife focus.

Wildflowers at Wildacres

Wildflower meadows.

As farming practices have changed and intensified.

Our native wildflowers do not stand a chance of becoming established. Wildfower meadows are a species rich habitat which we are in the process of restoring in areas of the nature reserve.
