The Surrey Hills is home to some wonderful species. In partnership with our land owners and managers and environmental experts we have come up with a selection of species that if you are lucky you might see out and about in the Surrey Hills. These species will only thrive if we work together to keep their habitats managed and healthy.
In response to declarations of Climate Emergency, a nature recovery strategy has been developed by landowners and managers in the Surrey Hills.
The strategy contains the context for our activities aimed at making space for nature; what we aspire to deliver; how we will collaborate to create positive change; who will be involved; and how we plan to fund it all. Although our geographical boundary is the Surrey Hills National Landscape, we are committed to working across borders to ensure that knowledge and the impact of our activities reach beyond the area.
