Currently only 3.2% of England’s land and sea is protected yet the UK is part of a global agreement to protect 30% by 2030. We need to do more to protect land for nature. Nature reserves are parcels of land that are protected from development and destruction. This is why nature reserves are so important and why we are asking for your help today.
Plantlife owns nature reserves across Britain; from Munsary Peatlands in Caithness to Greena Moor in Cornwall to Caeau Tan y Bwlch in Gwynedd. We work hard to keep these habitats in good ecological condition. But this is becoming harder as costs rise.

Ranscombe Farm Reserve in Kent has been an important botanical site for hundreds of years. In fact, the first UK records of the nationally rare Meadow Clary Salvia pratensis and Rough Mallow Malva setigera were found here! However, as with all reserves, many plants like brambles can grow quickly and suffocate more delicate plants if left unchecked. By clearing the scrub and carefully managing the land at Ranscombe, we have seen a resurgence in many species that were struggling.
Previously extinct Interrupted Brome Bromus interruptus now has a stable population of over 13,000 plants.
