Living Landscapes

The Wildlife Trusts are working to transform the environment we live in: restoring, recreating and reconnecting wildlife-rich spaces in rural and urban areas by working in partnership with local communities, landowners, schools and businesses. We are identifying key areas to protect for wildlife, enlarging, improving and joining them up across the UK; on nature reserves, in towns and cities, and in partnership with hundreds of other landowners.

As the Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside want wildlife to thrive, to disperse and re-colonise our landscape so future generations can encounter, experience and enjoy our natural heritage. And so that we can too.

The Wildlife Trusts now have more than 100 Living Landscape schemes around the UK, where nature conservation work is helping to put wildlife back on the map outside our protected nature reserves and with the help of a wide range of partners and communities.

Here at the Wildlife Trust for Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside we play a key part in the Living Landscapes strategy. All of our conservation work is based around supporting this strategy, along with key areas of work such as our Mosslands and the Brockholes Living Landscapes Project. We are also working on landscape-sized projects at Lunt Meadows in Merseyside and Winmarleigh Moss near Garstang.

The Great Manchester Wetlands Nature Improvement Area will be the biggest scheme we have ever been involved in. With our partners this be of enourmous benefit to the environment, wildlife and people.
