Habitats & wildlife

Protecting nature in the New Forest

Over half of the unique landscape is internationally important for wildlife - a higher proportion than in any other English National Park.

We are working hard with partner organisations to protect this iconic landscape for future generations at a ‘landscape scale’ - not only within the boundaries of the National Park but into surrounding areas.

Find out more about current initiatives to connect habitats and to support the land management that sustains them. These include Europe's largest Higher Level Stewardship agri-environment scheme, worth £16m over 10 years to support commoning and improve New Forest habitats.
