Creating the biggest local nature corridor — together!

campaign

The Much Wilder Marlow Campaign is all about how we can reshape our thinking about our outside space, for our benefit and for that of all the species that rely on it. Small changes can not only benefit the biodiversity of that space but support the building of a larger, more diverse and healthy nature corridor here in Marlow, while giving us joy, more well being and a greater sense of connection with nature.

LET’S GET STARTED >


 

WHAT IS A NATURE CORRIDOR AND WHY IS IT NEEDED?

 

A nature corridor is areas of land that connect larger nature habitats. Without them wildlife cannot move around our human built environments, these corridors can be big or small. Here in Marlow we can use our gardens, balconies, doorsteps, driveways, businesses, schools and all green spaces to make different choices and increase their health for all species, including ourselves. Marlow has a natural corridor, but how connected is it? How healthy is it? Can we reveal more earth, plant more native species, do less mowing and create more habitats to make it larger and more healthy?

Can we do less tradition gardening, but more tending and habitat building?



 

WE MUST ACT NOW

 

Climate change and habitat loss is resulting in devastating loss to the UK’s wildlife and biodiversity. Find our more, read the State of Nature Report.

The choices we make in our garden, balcony, place of work or school give us all a way to act or influence how we encourage a better way of looking after Marlow’s natural world and ourselves.
