Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB

Wild Days Conservation work with Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in a special partnership forming part of a wider development project funded by the Coastal Communities Fund and hosted by Suffolk Coastal District Council.

The Volunteer Tourism project was initiated in 2015 to promote new forms of sustainable tourism in the area, and attract more visitors away from peak holiday periods. The Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB and Wild Days have developed a pilot programme of wildlife conservation and research holidays throughout Suffolk for 2016 as a platform for further development on the future.

Other local conservation partners managing land within the AONB, including the National Trust and RSPB, are also involved in the project.
