Our priority landscapes
Unprecedented scales and rates of development require the same scales of action for wildlife. Within this there is an opportunity for landscape-scale transformation, and the realisation of this ambition will require widespread collaboration, understanding, and resources from a range of partner organisations.
Natural Cambridgeshire believes that a landscape-scale, spatial approach to nature recovery will deliver widespread public access to beautiful, unique, and tranquil landscapes, which in turn will create an environment that attracts workers and leads to more productive employees and better businesses.
To deliver our Doubling Nature Vision, six priority landscapes have been identified around which to focus nature recovery efforts. These landscapes have been chosen because of their unique ecological and geographic features, and their intrinsic value to the identity and natural heritage of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough landscape.
