We will be adding links to this page which have ecology information from websites that offer expert advice and knowledge on the actual River Crane Sanctuary area and on wider ecological issues which affect biodiversity, connectivity, pollution and more.

Groups already in this area have done so much to protect and promote sustainability along the River Crane Corridor and our amazing green Borough. We are passionate amateurs and will defer to their expertise. 

Please join the RSPB and partake in the Annual Garden Bird watch and The Butterfly Conservation Organisation for the  Butterfly Count to register the diversity and numbers; especially if you live adjacent to the River Crane Sanctuary area.

More links coming to sites and videos on ecology. Meanwhile check out Sir David Attenborough's many films and offerings, Our local Hero!
