Allow a small part of your garden to be wild
Every little helps!
More and more land is being used to grow our food and to build our new offices and homes. Wild animals have less and less space in which to build their homes.
What can you do to help?
- Let a small patch of wild grass grow in your garden - it can make a difference to many of the wild animals and plants that live in Britain. Why? It's a little bit less work! your garden will be more interesting if it has some other animals living in it.
- Your garden will grow attractive wild flowers.
- Leave your garden pond to its own devices. It will attract frogs, toads and newts. Even the smallest of ponds can house hundreds of plants and animals - many of which are rare.
- Just a small patch of wilderness in your garden will allow other animals like birds butterflies and hedgehogs to live alongside us.
