Our irreplaceable ancient woodland is under threat.

Home to more threatened species than any other habitat in the UK. Woodland is our version of the rainforest. Around 25% of our breeding bird and butterfly species rely on woodland and it is crucial for all of our bats.

Our woodland is silently dying, having a devastating impact on our wildlife. We must act, now, to save what remains.

  • 46% decline in broad-leaved woodland from 1947 to 2002, resulting in a shocking 74% decline in woodland butterflies such as the delicate wood white and pearl-bordered fritillary.
  • 70% decline in woodland birds like wood warblers and pied flycatchers.
  • 34% decline in ancient woodland plant diversity.
