"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

The People’s Trust for Endangered Species (PTES) says that the biggest challenge for wild animals today is finding safe places to live.

  • Cities are expanding
  • Farming is intensifying
  • Green spaces are rapidly disappearing

And so animals have fewer places to live. 

However, gardens have an important top play in providing havens for wildlife – in giving them food and shelter. 

The more wildlife friendly we can make our gardens, the better a chance wildlife will have.

There’s plenty we can all do to help, such as making a feeding station for hedgehogs – we’ve put a hedgehog hotel in our garden.  You can build a small pond for amphibians, or create a log pile for insects.  Pretty much all the flowers in our garden are wildlife friendly and it gives us huge pleasure to watch the wildlife enjoying them. 

Make your garden wildlife friendly

It’s easy to do.
