Biodiversity Conservation Management and Improvement

How important is it that I manage my land for biodiversity conservation?
Biodiversity conservation not only depends upon the protection of important habitats and species, but also requires the positive management of their environment to maintain favourable conditions for their continuation.

Text Box: “Ensuring that future generations can enjoy England’s rich geology, landscapes and biodiversity, means we must significantly improve the protection and management of what we have today. Improving the conditions of the natural environment is required to ensure that everyone benefits from the services it provides”.  Natural England (Strategic Direction, 2006-09)

Furthermore, biodiversity conservation increasingly requires the restoration of degraded habitats or the creation of new habitats and networks of habitats to maintain viable communities and facilitate colonisation and dispersal.

How can I improve the biodiversity of my land?

GreenDim.bmpcan advise and support land owners and land managers in conserving and enhancing  biodiversity whilst recognising that land still has to continue to provide for a wide range of other needs, be it food or timber production, fisheries or recreation. If you are considering improving the biodiversity interests of your land, please contact us. Just send us an e-mail or contact us by telephone.
