Working together for World Wildlife Day

Celebrated on 3 March, World Wildlife Day is an annual global event dedicated to the preservation of wildlife. More than just a single date on a calendar, it’s a wonderful opportunity to work together to safeguard the future of wild animals for generations to come.

Wildlife conservation often conjures images of endangered species in jungles, savannas, deserts and arctic regions, but a recent State of Nature Report reveals that the UK remains one of the world’s most nature depleted countries. This is a stark reminder that we also need to do everything we can to support wildlife closer to home.

To that end, we’ve joined forces with our friends at Brent Lodge Wildlife Hospital to raise awareness and provide helpful tips. Brent Lodge is an incredible charity that treats sick, injured and orphaned animals before rehabilitating them back into their natural habitats. From malnourished garden birds to sick hedgehogs, they told us that lack of food and loss of habitat are some of the main challenges faced by British wildlife.

How to create a safe haven for wildlife in your garden

Creating a safe haven for garden visitors is one of the most important things you can do to help them thrive. Here are some simple ways to improve biodiversity in your own backyard:

  • Stop using chemicals: Chemicals work their way through the food chain, killing more than the species they were intended for. Spraying a plant with herbicides will not only harm the caterpillar that’s nibbling the leaves, but also the bird or hedgehog that eats the caterpillar. Welcoming diverse wildlife can help to keep pests down naturally.
  • Choose a variety of plants and trees: By growing a wide variety of plants, flowers and shrubs, you’ll be supporting all sorts of pollinators, birds and insects. Trees are another important source of food and shelter, and smaller varieties like crab apples don’t need much space.
  • Provide shelter: Leaving your garden a little wild around the edges is one of the best ways to provide shelter for all sorts of creatures. Areas of long grass harbour insects, log piles make excellent hideouts for solitary bees and beetles, a compost heap provides sanctuary for worms while trees allow birds to roost and nest. You can also give nature a hand by making insect hotels, hanging nest boxes and hiding hedgehog houses in quiet corners.
  • Provide food: By welcoming everything from tiny aphids to larger mammals you’ll create a natural and self-supporting ecosystem in your garden. Pollen, berries, seeds and fruits are all nutritious treats. Feeding wild birds is also a good way to help them survive cold winters, support their young or prepare to migrate.
  • Provide water: Creating a small pond is an excellent way to attract wildlife to your garden. From thirsty bees to frogs and dragonflies, ponds support all sorts of creatures. If you don’t have room for a pond, add a shallow saucer of clean water or a bird bath where our feathered friends can bathe and drink.

Want to do your bit for wildlife in your area? Simply feeding the birds, making bug hotels, and planting flowers for pollinators can all help to maintain a biodiverse ecosystem in which many creatures will thrive. Don’t forget to enter our competition to win a bird feeding bundle to support our feathered friends!
