Protecting Wildlife Where You Live
Birmingham and the Black Country has a rich social, economic and natural heritage with wildlife as varied and valuable as that of any other part of the United Kingdom. The rare and the special are here, from scarce mammals like water voles and polecats to dragonflies and kingfishers, plus a huge variety of plant life.
We work on a landscape scale, working for nature's recovery, leading hundreds of partners and community groups to protect, create and improve vibrant wildlife-rich green spaces, linking green corridors to connect wildlife and people to high quality natural areas while helping mitigate the effects of climate change.
Alongside our work in the field we screen and respond to planning applications for wildlife impact, and are home to EcoRecord, our regional ecological records database.
