Causes We Champion

Sheffield Swift Network

Is dedicated to swift protection in the city of Sheffield. Our aim is to try and halt and even reverse the catastrophic decline of these amazing birds and make SHEFFIELD a TRUE SWIFT CITY.

It’s all about Bugs in Issue 3

“Saving the small things that run the planet”

Sir David Attenborough once said “If we and the rest of the back-boned animals were to disappear overnight, the rest of the world would get on pretty well.  But if invertebrates were to disappear, the world’s ecosystems would collapse.”  

Formerly ‘The Invertebrate Conservation Trust’, Buglife is the spokesperson for invertebrate conservation and represents all things invertebrate.

We’re Batty About Bats in Issue 2

These fascinating little animals account for more than a quarter of mammal species in the UK.  However, their numbers have been declining considerably over the last century.  

The vital work of the Bat Conservation Trust is championed in Issue 2 of Love Wild Gardens Zine.  

You can also learn more about Gardening for Bats in a piece by by Shirley Thompson, Honorary Education Officer, Bat Conservation Trust.

Issue 1 - Chosen Cause

It was all about the hoggies in Issue 1. Once a common sight in our gardens, this spiny species is now declining rapidly across the UK. An estimated 30% of the population has disappeared over the last decade and there are now thought to be fewer than a million hedgehogs left.  

Our prickly pals certainly need all the help they can get!

We were delighted to support this small but vital Hedgehog Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre in South Yorkshire - For The Love of Hedgehogs
