Nature Improvement Areas are boosting wildlife, communities and economy.

WILDLIFE, communities and local economies are reaping the benefits of England's new Nature Improvement Areas, according to a report published on the 14th November.

The Nene Valley is one of these twelve Nature Improvement Areas (NIAs) set up by the government in 2012, which have helped farmers to access EU grants, made valuable contributions towards university research and boosted the £210 billion rural economy.

They've also attracted outside investment – more than £730,000 from business partners and £7.8 million from NGOs and not-for-profit organisations.
