Parish Wildlife Project

Parish Wildlife Project (PWP) is intended to assist communities in identifying how they can contribute to the conservation of habitats and species within their local areas.

We are working with parish councils, local community groups, landowners, local people and individuals to increase the number of sites that are being managed for nature, by local community or volunteer groups, from 20 to 45 by 2018.

To find out more about the projects and the groups involved visit the Parish Wildlife Project page on the Nature in the Dales website.
