Springwatch at Minsmere

It has been an exciting time at RSPB Minsmere nature reserve recently. The BBC’s television show Springwatch was broadcast from its brand-new home at Minsmere, following the fortunes of British wildlife through the season. The three-week long wildlife party started on Monday 26 May and stretched right through to Thursday 12 June 2014. This is a wonderful endorsement of everything the Natura People project has helped us achieve at Minsmere.

Final report: visitor engagement techniques

Our final report about how to engage visitors with the Natura 2000 story is now available online! It can be downloaded at final report visitor engagement techniques.


Natura People brings together European partners to ensure the long-term protection of the natural environment. By working together, partners in the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands are demonstrating the economic, social and health benefits of nature reserves, and developing best practices to encourage more visitors to the sites.
