The Manhood Wildlife and Heritage Group cares for the various habitats across the Manhood Peninsula where wildlife can flourish. Some sites may be home to rare species, others form a network of rich and diverse habitats, which are managed by local volunteers of all ages and abilities.
The volunteers may participate in fieldwork, conservation projects, in the development of the initiatives to combat climate change, all helping to safeguard the unique qualities of the Manhood Peninsula.
The work of the Manhood Wildlife and Heritage Group has been acknowledged with many awards.
