The Urban Wildlife Network is the only organisation in the UK dedicated to nature conservation in towns and cities. The Network provides inspiration and information related to the protection and enjoyment of wildlife in urban areas. The Network will make the connections between overall regeneration objectives, peoples’ aspirations for their local environment, and delivery mechanisms such as local biodiversity action plans, community strategies and community action.
The Network’s role is advisory rather than operational, encouraging good practice, highlighting opportunities, responding to policy and other initiatives, giving an overview of ecological issues, and providing a “one-stop shop” for those engaged in urban design, management and development who need ecological information.
The Network is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. The President is Chris Baines and the members of its Executive are:
