About Us

"Wild Lakeland delivers conservation ecology and habitat restoration throughout the Lake District and Cumbria.

Our specialist areas focus on grasslands and hedgerows, with a strong botanical background. We offer a mix of consultancy and conservation work such as design and planning, management plans, surveys and monitoring, right through to hands-on conservation such as hay meadow restoration and hedge-laying. Being an independent organisation means all work is tailored to the individual client's needs.

We work with a diverse range of clients and stakeholders including farmers, landowners, private nature reserves, country estates, government bodies, businesses, agencies and charities."

Rob Dixon, Conservation Ecologist and founder of Wild Lakeland
