Management of Fens Pools

Wardens take care of the Fens Pools Nature Reserve with work that includes vital management of habitats. Managing habitats such as hay cuts of grasslands and introduction of a pond connection network throughout the reserve enable a wide diversity of species to be sustained and therefore conserved. 


The diversity of habitats within the reserve sustain a wide range of animal species.
