This resource kit aims to help you -
• Identify the existing biodiversity values of your land and protect what you’ve already got
• Find out about pest control, planting trees, habitat protection (both physical and legal)and access to outside funding
• Find and record essential information that is often requested when seeking funds
• Set up an action plan.
