Over 97% of the UK’s species-rich grassland has been lost in less than a century and it now covers just 1% of land.
Plantlife is working across England, Scotland and Wales to restore it.
A grassland is an area such as a meadow, lawn or hillside dominated by grass. In the UK flower-filled grasslands are a defining feature of the summer, and colourful meadows and pastures of our countryside are what most easily spring to mind.
But there are many more grassland types – from the machair plains of north-west Scotland to the rolling hills of south-west England.
Some of our grasslands are still rich with many different species of wild plants and fungi – but sadly these are among the most threatened habitats in Britain.
There are many reasons for their decline, including conversion into crops and more intensive management, tree planting, being lost to development and more.
Plantlife helps farmers, landowners, and community groups take care of our grasslands for the future with practical advice. We also influence government policymaking to have an impact across biodiversity, planning, agriculture, and climate change.
We are working to ensure there is the right legislation, policy, and funding in place to help create, restore, and take care of our species-rich grasslands.
Drive positive change for your local wildlife and local communities with Plantlife's LNRS Local Nature Recovery Strategy guidance.
It’s waxcap season in the Upper Ystwyth and Plantlife’s Sheena Duller explains why fungi and farming can go so well together.
Since the 1930s, 97% of wildflower meadows across England and Wales have disappeared – and we're creating positive change.
Grasslands like meadows and parks are not just home to wildflowers, they are also an important habitat for waxcap fungi.
