Grassland conservation 

Changes in farming practices, scrub burning, poaching and drainage have put heavy pressure on grassland and heath habitats in many areas across the globe. Though they are often exposed environments, heathland and grasslands can be very rich habitats. UK heathlands and chalk grasslands are a shrinking haven for myriad birds and insects, 97% of British wildflower meadows have already disappeared, while grassland habitats worldwide are suffering. 

We are working to repair and prevent this damage, through breeding programmes, monitoring work, developing conservation capacity and raising awareness of the value these ecosystems for wildlife, people and the planet.
