What is a habitat?

Can you spot any wildlife habitats in and around the woodland?

Hint: they could be natural or human-made



Create a habitat to help local wildlife, in a quiet corner of a garden or in another outdoor area.

You could:

  • create a pile of rocks and stones,
  • loosely pile leaves, grass cuttings or straw,
  • make a pile of logs,
  • start a compost heap.
