What do we do?

Bioabundance Community Interest Company wants our nature back. The state of the UK’s nature is almost the worst in the world. Oxfordshire people have the worst access to nature of any county in the south-east (outside London).

We face wholesale destruction of our natural places, our Green Belt, and our Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Government forces us to Build, Build, Build, everywhere.

Bioabundance takes bold action to restore nature. We have taken legal action against the Government to attempt to stop over-development, we talk to decision-makers, we advise beleaguered communities, we are championing a new Regional Nature Park, and floodplain restoration.

We are a grassroots community of residents, nature-lovers, ecologists, planners, architects, and parish councils.   

"We need to restore nature in Oxfordshire to the best state it has been in since the 1950s"
Dr Sue Roberts
"It grieves me a lot to see this erosion of the Green Belt, a precious thing. When it’s gone it is gone"
Prof Dieter Helm

Crumbling bridges
