What is the Sheffield State of Nature report?

Nature Counts logo

In 2013, 25 nature conservation organizations joined forces to produce the UK's first State of Nature Report. A second national report produced in 2013, gave further insights as to how our wildlife is faring. In all, the picture isn't good - in the long-term, 56% of nearly 4000 species assessed have declined since 1970. 

Now, the Nature Counts project has embarked on our own local report to assess how Sheffield's wildife and wild spaces are faring. 

Heritage Lottery Fund logo

Supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and in collaboration with a number of partner organisations and stakeholders, the Sheffield State of Nature report (2018) brings together data on local species and habitats. The report summarises findings from local reports, and highlights case studies on species, habitats, local groups and conservation action. The report is aimed and professionals and amateurs alike and will be used to help drive positive conservation efforts throughout Sheffield. The report will be available to download from late April.


The production of the Sheffield State of Nature report (2018) is a partnership project and is being compiled with guidance from a steering group made up of representatives from Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust, the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam UniversitySorby Natural History SocietySheffield Bird Study Group, Natural England and Sheffield Museums: Weston Park.
