Nature in Shropshire: get up close to beauty

Shropshire’s varied and unspoilt surroundings make it one of the most biodiverse counties in the British Isles. Woodland, farmland, fields, grass, scrubland, moors, meres and mosses allow an abundance of birds, insects and small mammals to thrive here. Huge conservation efforts from people who love nature mean rare species are making a return to Shropshire. Special nature projects are helping to sustain colonies of rare hazel dormouse, and the shy pine marten has been recently spotted here. All around Shropshire you’ll find places for birdwatching, for admiring flowers and trees. Shropshire is a place for quiet appreciation of the nature around us. You can see animals up close at several Shropshire attractions, including adventure farms aimed at children and smaller conservation centres. Go gently in Shropshire and be rewarded by nature: are you ready to visit us?
