The Birmingham and Black Country Nature Improvement Area is one of the first twelve Nature Improvement Areas in England. The vision of the partnership is to achieve long-term environmental gains for the wildlife and people of Birmingham & the Black Country by delivering targeted, on the ground, biodiversity projects at a landscape scale.
The Birmingham & Black Country Nature Improvement Area is a partnership of over 50 organisations that have come together to deliver significant improvements to the natural environment of Birmingham, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton. The Nature Improvement Area is the culmination of decades of working towards our vision of an urban landscape permeated by a network of high quality greenspace which is rich in wildlife and enjoyed by the people who live and work here. It represents a step-change away from site-focused nature conservation to a joined-up landscape-scale approach.
The Wildlife Trust, as lead partner, is looking to help get more groups involved in the work of the Nature Improvement Area. Please look at the links to read about what has been done so far, more details about the aims and what the priorities are for funding, who's already involved and how to apply.
