National Nature Reserves in England


National Nature Reserves in England

National Nature Reserves in England are managed by Natural England and are key places for wildlife and natural features in England. They were established to protect the most important areas of habitat and of geological formations. NNRs are managed on behalf of the nation, not always by Natural England themselves, but sometimes by non-governmental organisations such as the members of The Wildlife Trusts partnership, the National Trust, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or others.

There are over 224 NNRs in England covering over 800 km² and practically every kind of landscape. Often they contain rare species or nationally important species of plants, insects, butterflies, birds, mammals etc.
