RSPB Dorset Heathland Project

The Dorset Heathland Project was set up in 1989 to offset continuing losses of lowland heathland and to reduce fragmentation, through a programme of land management advice and habitat restoration.


The Partnership's aim is to alleviate urban pressures on the Dorset heaths brought about by new residential development in the area.

This is achieved with a combination of wardening, an inclusive education programme, access management and fire risk assessment and heath management.

There are several strands of monitoring to establish baseline data and to gauge success of work and projects.
