About our website

This website is a developing resource for the Wildlife Gardening Forum and for the community of wildlife gardeners, conventional gardeners, allotmenteers, natural historians, ecologists and policy makers in Britain and beyond.As a small volunteer based charity, we are creating our website content through specialists on our trustee board, and many members with high levels of experience. 

We want to make the site a source for all relevant evidence-based information about gardens, people and biodiversity, and fill the gaps which the many other websites about garden wildlife tend not to cover.  Indeed where other sites cover subjects extremely well, such as for birds and butterflies, we will not reinvent the wheel but give you links to the sites we admire.  Consequently, we are  concentrating on the scientific evidence behind garden biodiversity, the evidence about garden management for biodiversity, and information relevant to education, human health training, planning and new build housing.

The material is presented here at three levels.  For some big topics such as garden biodiversity there is an introductory page which summarises what lies beneath. The main pages reached throug the menus pesent a basic and uncomplicated summary of what is known on the subject.  In many cases however we have created downloadable pdf files which provide considerably more information for those people who are interested.  These documents contain proper references to sources such as scientific papers.

There will be new pages appearing on a regular basis, including over 100 pages on the varieties of garden wildlife, including identification and life cycle data.  As new pages are created, they will appear in the main menu, and we will flag their appearance here and on the front page.
New Pages to 18th April:

At relaunch the new site contains nearly all the material on-line on the original site, and some has been updated during the transfer.  The few remaining of the original pages will be posted in the next week or so.

The biggest differences on this new site are the improved and more conventional navigation system, and the system-responsive nature of the site, with each page designed to fit on lap-top screens and older smaller mobile phones in landscape mode.

Our newsletter archive is now on-line, and you will find new pages for our Trustees' blog and for news.  These aren't very full yet, and it is up to you to contribute!

You will alos find requests for you to send in photos (and videos) that could be added to our gallery, and help illustrate  the many articles which are in preparation for the garden wildlife section.

To help with this we have upgraded our Contact page, and you should find it easy to send in photos or text pieces.

PLEASE let us know if you find errors in the texts, pictures or structure of this site so we can correct them.
