New Life for Chalk Grassland
Wiltshire is home to 50% of the UK's and roughly 40% of the World's Chalk Downland - the grassland equivalent to tropical rainforest because of its incredible density of flower and insect life. Historical losses in the last 50 years are around 50% mainly due to agricultural intensification. This threat has increased with high wheat prices and the decline in sheep farming. It is time to act to save this wonderful habitat.
