Making a grand home for nature, one small patch at a time.
Join the club: As we all know many valuable insects, which we both rely on and love such as bees and butterflies, are rapidly declining in number due to extreme loss of their habitat. Research shows that lots of little reserves act like one massive reserve for wildlife, which move between them using ‘wildlife corridors’.

Felixstowe Community Nature Reserve
“I wish the Bristol Schools’ Nature Reserve every success in helping local wildlife. I hope this project will inspire other people and organisations in the Bristol area to take up the idea of community nature reserves, and to spread that idea far and wide. We all know that wildlife populations in the UK are in decline. However, by taking an active part in a community nature reserve, each of us has an opportunity to help to stop that decline. Please encourage one another!”
