What do we do?

Bioabundance Community Interest Company aims to restore wildlife to nature-depleted Oxfordshire. Ours is one of the most nature-depleted countries in the world, and Oxfordshire has the worst access to nature for its residents of any county in the south-east (outside London).

We face the 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 will take whatever bold action is needed to protect our landscapes and restore nature. We have striven to take legal action against the government, we feed into consultations, we provides advice to beleaguered communities, and we are championing the concept of a new Regional Nature Park.

We are a diverse grassroots community of citizens, 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"

"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
