Manifesto for Chilterns Wildlife

Our Chilterns wildlife needs us, and it needs you more than ever

The Manifesto for Chilterns Wildlife is our commitment to restore, enhance and protect Chilterns wildlife, but we need your help to bring nature back into our lives by:

  • Creating more space for nature
  • Making the places we live and work wildlife friendly
  • Ensuring that children grow up with wild green spaces to explore
  • Restoring the network of wildlife habitats that the Chilterns is known for
  • Creating a landscape that is resilient to the development pressures it faces
  • Promoting nature as a vital life-support system

The Chilterns is one of the most beautiful and distinctive landscapes in the UK. It has a dramatic chalk escarpment, nationally important chalk grassland, ancient wooded valleys and globally scarce chalk streams all interconnect across the landscape to support a diverse and unique range of flora and fauna.
