Help nature recover in Greater Manchester

Closed 7 Mar 2021

Opened 10 Feb 2021


Right now, our natural environment is facing many challenges including climate change, pollution, biodiversity loss and urbanisation to name but a few.

We want to hear your views to help shape Greater Manchester’s first Local Nature Recovery Plan.

Our Nature Recovery Plan will be a blueprint for the future of Greater Manchester’s natural environment and local wildlife. It will set out what needs to be done to restore declining species and habitats, and give nature the best chance to recover. Specifically, the plan will:

  • Map the most valuable existing habitats for nature
  • Agree priorities for nature recovery
  • Help identify where funding is most needed
  • Help us sustainably manage and restore nature
  • Identify new green opportunities for the city-region

You know what’s needed in your area better than anyone, so let us know what you think so our Nature Recovery Plan makes a difference now and for future generations.

What happens next

Thank you for taking part in this survey. Your views will be used to help inform the content and implementation of the Greater Manchester Nature Recovery Plan. For further information please check out the Nature Greater Manchester website and follow us @GMGreenCity
