Geographical remit: 
National - England


We want to conserve, protect and improve the physical and natural environment by promoting biological diversity, for the benefit of all.

We aim:

(1) To have small wildlife sanctuaries which are close enough to enable native beetles, bumble bees, and other invertebrates, birds, reptiles and very small mammals to use them as stepping stones of protected natural habitat, so as to preserve genetic diversity. 

(2) To encourage interest in biodiversity and natural history and enable the observation and recording of species by groups or individuals visiting these wildlife sanctuaries.


Work with volunteers to create and maintain a series of wildlife sanctuaries (stepping stones). 

Hold surveys of the species present and share this information with the Suffolk County Council Biological Monitoring Office.

Gain as many sites as possible to form stepping stones in close proximity. These sites may be very small, (from half an acre), but the majority will need to be approximately 6 acres.We envisage that the land would all be owned by the charity, though the possibility that in the future some land might be rented or leased is not ruled out.

Make the reserves available for organised groups (e.g. school parties) to raise awareness of wildlife issues and the importance of promoting biodiversity.The land will not be open for general public use as these will be very small sites and access would have too great a damaging effect, as much of the wildlife is at ground level.
