Natural England is here to conserve and enhance the natural environment, for its intrinsic value, the wellbeing and enjoyment of people and the economic prosperity that it brings. Natural England’s people bring a wide range of knowledge and skills to the challenges of safeguarding our natural environment - combining expertise in farming and land management; conservation and ecology; terrestrial and marine biology; land use planning and landscape architecture; geology and hydrology with a track record of delivering a first class service to our customers and value for money. We target our funded schemes, knowledge and advice to farmers and land managers throughout the country, whilst giving guidance and leadership to our partners, farming community and government.
