What we do
Here at the Wildlife Garden Project CIC, our aim is to provide the information and inspiration for you to create your own little haven for wildlife, right in your back garden.
As a Community Interest Company (CIC), our small team is working to make wildlife gardening the norm by increasing awareness and making information and advice accessible to everyone through our films, articles, projects and campaigns.
You can get practical advice and information on Wildlife Gardening and learn new tips and techniques in our tutorial videos. And we’re always writing more articles and creating more videos so follow us on our social media pages for updates to make sure you don’t miss anything!
The people behind the project
Our story started back in 2010 when Laura Turner started the Wildlife Garden Project. It began with a desire to make films about wildlife gardening to inspire more people to make their gardens more wildlife friendly. With the help of a friendly bunch of knowledgeable volunteers, we made videos and wrote articles, fuelled only by a shared love of wildlife. This website came soon after, giving us a place to assemble together all of our wildlife gardening videos, articles and tips in one place.
It wasn’t long before we started holding stands at events including the Bristol Festival of Nature and Birdfair. In 2021 we welcomed Tina Lindsay and Tom Shields to our team and became a Community Interest Company, allowing us to reach even more people with our wildlife gardening message.
Helping the UK’s wildlife through wildlife gardening
Imagine if everybody in the UK made just a few small changes in their gardens to help our British wildlife. Think of the giant patchwork of habitats that could be created, all the new homes that could be formed, and all the mouths that could be fed.
Here at the Wildlife Garden Project, we want to equip you with the information and inspiration to create your own little wildlife haven right on your doorstep. It doesn’t matter whether you live in the countryside or in a city, whether you own 50 acres or a balcony, everyone can do their bit.
So, get stuck in to some wildlife gardening and enjoy all those creatures that will make your wildlife garden their new home!
Want to get involved?
We are always on the lookout for wildlife experts, writers, filmmakers and photographers who share our passion for wildlife and our desire to help conserve it.
We would love to hear from you if you are a writer who can contribute to our ever growing collection of articles on wildlife gardening or species, a photographer who would love us to share your photos on our articles and social media, or a camera operator who would like to get involved with our films.
We believe wildlife conservation works best through collaboration, so if you work for a wildlife conservation charity, non-profit or community group, we’d love to have a chinwag about ways we can work together towards our shared aims.
