A Living Landscape is a recovery scheme for nature – a way to help wildlife flourish – that has been in use by the Wildlife Trusts since 2006. It is a new, holistic way of thinking about how we manage our land to be a better environment for both wildlife and people.
Living Landscape project areas
aim to create corridors of suitable habitat, such as river valleys or hedgerows, which will act as ‘wildlife highways’ that will permit species to move through the countryside. Sometimes this movement will be via a series of ‘stepping stones’ – pockets of suitable habitat interspersed around the landscape, such as a series of small woodlands and copses dotted around farmland, or even wildlife-friendly gardens in towns and villages.
NWT has identified a number of priority areas where we shall be focussing our efforts and conservation work. These Living Landscape project areas have been selected to cover some of the key wildlife areas in Norfolk and other areas where there are opportunities to create new habitats.
