Living Landscapes

Imagine a Suffolk...
...where wildlife flourishes in countryside, villages and towns
...where children grow up inspired by the sights and sounds of nature
...where people live happier, healthier lives

This is our vision for a Living Landscape:


The role of nature reserves in a Living Landscape

As the ecological anchor of a Living Landscape, our nature reserves are more important than ever.


Suffolk Broads Living Landscape

We aim to create a rich landscape of wetland habitat from Lowestoft to Beccles.


Blyth-Alde Living Landscape

The quality of the landscape makes this unique area enormously important to local people and visitors.


Creating a farmland Living Landscape

Our team of conservation advisers are working with landowners and community groups to recreate habitat and restore habitat links.

Stour Valley Woodlands Living Landscape

We aim to create an extensive woodland landscape which reunites isolated groups of dormouse and other woodland species.


Valley Fens Living Landscape

The headwaters of the Little Ouse and Waveney valleys hold some of the UK’s most precious fens.


Sandlings Heaths and Forests Living Landscape


Our aim is to reconnect these fragmented sites on a landscape scale to create the largest unbroken tract of heathland in Suffolk.
