FERNDOWN has its very own Ecological Project.

Our project covers several areas: Includes providing new homes for species protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, and endangered EU legislated protected species. We have chosen Bats, Owls and Birds of prey and other red listed species as the most at risk locally.

We have decided to provide a number of habitat boxes for all of the above.
