Welcome to Crowborough Conservation
Work is continuing on the Threatened Species Project, initially funded by the Big Lottery, and we are now extending our key species to include hedgehogs in addition to dormice, reptiles and amphibians. We are now encouraging our members to perform hedgehog surveys in their gardens. For more information on the project, please see our Threatened Species Project pages
