About WR4wildlife

We are a group of Whalley Range (Manchester) residents interested in nature and wildlife.

Started in January 2011, the WR4wildlife project aims to stimulate interest and increase knowledge and appreciation of the wildlife living amongst us in Whalley Range, and encourage people to do more to support nature. By deepening our connection with nature we also enhance our sense of wellbeing.

If you are interested in wildlife, nature and the environment and would like to meet  up with like-minded people, there is also an Alexandra Park Wildlife Group for people who would like to get involved with activities and events in Alexandra Park.

The Alexandra Park Wildlife Group hold meetings, events, talks, walks, activities from nature surveys and bio blitzes, wildlife photography, bird song recording to bat walks and bird watches, as well as gardening for wildlife and lots more –  all in Alexandra Park.

All ideas for activities are welcome! There is no charge to join or get involved and you can get involved in whatever way you would like.

Join our mailing list for regular updates and information.

    I’m not sure, I spoke to someone who was spraying the grassy verges in Alex park and he assured me it didn’t harm insects and animals etc. I guess we could find out from Environment on Call tel. 0161 954 9000

    Hi we took 8 DVDs of blue tits building nest and having family in a box in the garden. We watched them every day for weeks and were intrigued with the events. There were 11 eggs but only 5 survived. Could you use these DVDs. Tel No 860-7831

    Dear Whalley Range for Wildlife, I am writing on behalf of Our Lady’s Primary School, Whalley Road. We were wondering if one of your members might come and speak to the current Year Six students? They are just completing their SATS tests now and thus from June 10th will have completed the National Curriculum for Primary Schools; they will be able to study what they want!! So many of us know hardly anything about our wildlife that we thought we would like to discover more and found out about you. Can you help?

    Yours faithfully,

    Janice Wood

      Hi Janice, sure we’d be glad to help. I’ll send you an email to the address you gave when you posted the comment. Would be good to meet up and have a chat about it. Thanks for getting in touch
