Mission 1 - Beyond the backdoor
We need your help to build a picture of the extent of garden resources that are available to wildlife, so we can fully understand the value of both individual gardens and the collective habitat for the animals that live alongside us. This will highlight where there are gaps in these resources and how we could improve things for the host of species that could potentially use it. Anyone can take part, because it's just as important to know what resources are in our inner cities as it is in suburban and village locations. So even if your outdoor space is a tiny balcony, do let us know.
