Our five-acre site in South Kensington is being transformed into a welcoming, accessible and biologically diverse green space in the heart of London. New, sustainably built outdoor galleries will showcase our scientific research and provide a space for everyone to enjoy and explore urban nature. As part of this, we're extending our existing Wildlife Garden in order to double the area of native habitats within our grounds, providing a fabulous setting for our historic building.
We'll also be working with organisations across the UK to inspire the next generation, create new opportunities for young people in cities and help everyone to learn about humanity's impact on the natural world.
Our Urban Nature Project symbolises the galvanisation of a national urban biodiversity movement that encourages an appreciation of the diversity of wildlife in cities and mobilises people to take action to protect it.
