Water for wildlife

Hello Wildlife!

You might have heard that water is hitting the headlines at the moment. The Midlands, the South West  and the South East of England is experiencing a drought after lower rainfall than usual over the winter. Many of us live in areas with a hosepipe ban, which means that gardens, lawns and plants can't be watered over the summer with a hose.

But what does this mean for our wildlife? What problems do wild animals and plants face during a dry spring and summer, and what can we do to help? The Wildlife Trusts have put together top tips for helping garden wildlife through the dry spell and look at why saving water can be so important for our wildlife.
