Even small steps can make a big difference and there are many ways you can contribute to helping local biodiversity.

Have a look at the downloads on this page.

Inpdf icon garden for wildlife [1Mb] there are lots of ideas of action you can take in your garden at home or in your local area, such as making a bat box or planting fruit or vegetables that are good for wildlife, as well as tasty for you.

There are also two bird surveys we would particularly like you to help with. These are for pdf icon swifts [572kb] and pdf icon willow tits [731kb]. By knowing where these species are seen in North Lanarkshire we can target action to protect and enhance their declining populations.

Another brilliant way to get involved involved is by volunteering. You could be involved in a range of activities such as practical conservation work, surveying and recording or helping out at events on local green spaces. We're always looking for enthusiastic people to get in touch.
