Current and Previous Surveys & Consultations

2018 - Improving Hyndburn's Wildlife End of Project Survey

The Project: It has generally been reported that wildlife numbers are decreasing and that in most cases this is due to habitat loss. We realise there is an under used resource in the form of people’s gardens, backyards and outdoor spaces where we could encourage wildlife to thrive and we invited Hyndburn residents to get involved.  Please help by completing this End of Project Survey.

Please use the link below to complete the Survey.
You can also pop into PROSPECTS to complete a hard/paper copy.
By completing this survey you can collect a FREE packet of wildflower seeds from PROSPECTS and be entered in to the PRIZE DRAW to win a wildlife habitat for your garden or backyard.
