Biodiversity

Great yellow bumblebeeThe Trust has conducted research on farmland wildlife since the late 1960s and this has included ecological studies of individual species, habitats, systems and long-term changes. Unfortunately, post-war agricultural changes have diminished biodiversity on lowland farms, driven by government policy and European Union subsidy.

However, our research has identified ways of reversing this loss of biodiversity without reversing improvements to farming systems. We can also offer customised courses using our knowledge built from decades of scientific research on topics such as water vole re-introductionfarmland bird identificationarable flora restoration and black grouse conservation.
