The Wild Ken Hill rewilding project is working to restore natural ecosystems on the site. The goal is to show how using land can combat climate change, enhance air and water quality, and provide habitat for important wildlife. In an effort to serve as a model for other initiatives across Europe, the Wild Ken Hill team is dedicated to using the site as a living laboratory.
Wildflower meadows, mixed woodlands, and ponds have been created on the 500-acre site. The restoration project has returned rare wildflowers to the area, like early purple orchids, and created a haven for a variety of wildlife, including red kites and goshawks.
During the winter, the Wild Ken Hill team hosts workshops on birdwatching, guided walks and talks on the property.
The project has been praised by a number of environmental organisations, including the Wildlife Trusts, RSPB, and Butterfly Conservation. In 2019, the project won a prestigious award from the European Union for its work in promoting rewilding.

Show Respect For Seashore Creatures
Seashore creatures are fascinating and have found special ways of living in their environment. They have to adapt to survive the rigours of wave-action, exposure and predation. Some have shells for protection, but many need to hide under rocks, seaweed or in the sand.
Exploring The Seashore Is Fun, But Please Remember:
Take Photos, Not Living Animals
If you want to buy a souvenir:
Avoid Disturbing Wildlife
You can see many animals at their best when they are behaving naturally. This is true for animals such as seals, otters and seabirds, as well as rock pool animals. To avoid disturbing wildlife:
Take Your Rubbish Home With You
Beach rubbish is unsightly and can be dangerous to sea creatures. Much of the litter on our shores comes from tourists, shipping, fishing vessels and sewage outfalls. You can help to reduce this problem when visiting the coast:
Watch Where You Go
Beaches and sand dunes are prone to erosion and easily damaged by people and vehicles. To help protect the coast:
All cliffs are unstable and potentially dangerous, yet they are an impressive sight and from the cliff top it is possible to enjoy a panoramic view of the coastline. Cliffs also provide a very specialised habitat for the plants and animals that live on them.
