Natural England launches Big Wildlife Garden

Natural England has launched a virtual nature reserve linking the country's gardens and open spaces.

Launched today by Natural England, this innovative web site creates an online network of gardens and open spaces and encourages people of all ages to discover how to attract more wildlife into their gardens.

Dr Helen Phillips, Natural England's chief executive, said: "The Big Wildlife Garden is for anyone who is passionate about encouraging wildlife to their garden. By bringing together a community of enthusiasts of all ages and getting them to join forces online, we can create a virtual nature reserve in which wildlife can thrive."

In developing the Big Wildlife Garden, Natural England has worked closely with the Wildlife Gardening Forum, an association of approximately 70 leading gardening and conservation organisations.
