Transformation of the NHM’s five acre gardens as part of the Urban Nature Project are now underway. It will be turned into a welcoming, accessible and biologically diverse green space in the heart of London, including the newly improved wildlife garden acting as a living research laboratory, an immersive journey through the evolution of life on Earth and a learning and activity centre. In order to protect and preserve the well-established wildlife garden, the team have been working closely with scientists and gardeners to help maintain and eventually boost the urban biodiversity already present on site.
