Towards a Super National Nature Reserve - the Experience of Purbeck Heath Dorset

We are excited to introduce Peter Robertson, from RSPB Dorset, and Dagmar Junghanns from Natural England, to tell the story as to how seven landowners joined forces to create the largest lowland heath nature reserve in the UK. This is set to inspire the next generation of National Nature Reserves like the Proposed NNR Flashes of Wigan and Leigh.
