You can encourage in so much wildlife by choosing flowers that support our native insects, letting areas grow wild or even having a pond. It’s thought that there are 24 million gardens in the UK so imagine the incredible network of nature we could create across our towns, villages and cities by making our own green spaces a little more friendly for nature.

But even if you don’t have a garden, balconies, windowsills and doorsteps can provide vital resting and refuelling spaces for our wildlife. Below you’ll find multiple links to information to help you create a wildlife hotspot on your doorstep.
