Defra and Natural England are bringing together partners, legislation and funding, to create the Nature Recovery Network (NRN). Together, we will deliver the Network by restoring and enhancing England’s wildlife-rich places.

Creating a national network

The NRN will be a national network of wildlife-rich places. Our aim is to expand, improve and connect these places across our towns, cities and countryside.

The NRN is a major commitment in the government’s 25 Year Environment Plan and part of the forthcoming Nature Strategy.

What the NRN will achieve

The NRN will help us deal with 3 of the biggest challenges we face: biodiversity loss, climate change and wellbeing.

Establishing the NRN will:

  • enhance sites designated for nature conservation and other wildlife-rich places - newly created and restored wildlife-rich habitats, corridors and stepping stones will help wildlife populations to grow and move
  • improve the landscape’s resilience to climate change, providing natural solutions to reduce carbon and manage flood risk, and sustaining vital ecosystems such as improved soil, clean water and clean air
  • reinforce the natural and cultural diversity of our landscapes, and protect our historic natural environment
  • enable us to enjoy and connect with nature where we live, work and play - benefiting our health and wellbeing

NRN objectives

Through our work to create the NRN, by 2042 we will:

  • restore 75% of protected sites on land (including freshwaters) to favourable condition so nature can thrive
  • create or restore 500,000 hectares of additional wildlife-rich habitat outside of protected sites
  • recover threatened and iconic animal and plant species by providing more, diverse and better connected habitats
  • support work to increase woodland cover
  • achieve a range of environmental, economic and social benefits, such as carbon capture, flood management, clean water, pollination and recreation
