Case Studies

The Cambridge Nature Network aims to enable the recovery of nature in the Cambridge area. The vision of the network is to have significant areas of downland, fens, meadows, waterways, and woodlands in and around Cambridge, that are interconnected with other nature sites and corridors. These larger spaces for nature and their improved connectivity will allow animals and plants to circulate and thrive and will provide more green spaces for people to enjoy nature on their doorstep.

The Nature Network is a long-term vision that will be achieved over many decades through the ongoing delivery of new projects. You can find information about current and previous projects below.

Each of these projects will create new or better habitats for nature and they range in scope and scale from the large-scale conversion of farmland to small community projects. The range of organisations and people involved in these projects is really inspiring and includes local charities, local authorities, community groups, local landowners and farmers, universities and colleges, schools, contractors and individual people helping to plant trees and sow seeds. Collectively these projects and the efforts of those involved will make a difference over time.
