Local Nature Recovery Strategy

What is the Local Nature Recovery Strategy?

In late June 2023, the Isle of Wight Council were appointed by Defra as the ‘Responsible Authority (RA)’ to prepare the Local Nature Recovery Strategy (LNRS) for the island.

  • Local nature recovery strategies map nature recovery actions. 
  • They target actions in locations where they are most needed and where they provide the best environmental outcomes. 
  • The strategies will help to join up national efforts to reverse the decline of biodiversity.

More information on the Isle of Wight LNRS, including latest news and progress, can be found on the Island Nature website.
