Nature and Biodiversity
- www.naturenet.net – Got a question about the countryside, conservation or nature? The best thing to do is ask your local ranger! Rangers are friendly people who love to answer questions about our work. Well, maybe you can’t find a ranger at the moment. Just for this very eventuality, Naturenet provides a service called… ‘ASK THE RANGER’.

- Details of recycling on the Isle of Wight (Our Page)
- Store Room Project offers Island residents the opportunity to really help their community and environment by donating furniture, household items and white goods, which may otherwise have been taken to the landfill site, thereby providing a low cost service to members of the community who are not able to furnish their own homes. The local environment is helped along with our Island residents.
