Welcome to our garden for wildlife certification scheme. We hope you will find our questionnaire ‘inspirational and aspirational’.
You may like to know how we designed the questionnaire. We looked at a number of wildlife garden schemes and websites, designed a questionnaire that we sent to some ecologists in the field, and to folk with different sized gardens, as we wanted all the awards to be possible to achieve whatever size your gardens is, even if it a balcony. We ended up with the present questionnaire.
The science behind making good habitats for wildlife is changing as the science develops, so from time to time we will update the questions.
We do hope you will enjoy the questionnaire and delight in the increase in wildlife you see as a result of observing more closely and perhaps making some changes in your garden.
