Local wildlife sites

Local wildlife sites are areas of land in north Merseyside which are especially rich in wildlife. These sites make a major contribution to the ecological diversity of the area and are part of our natural heritage.

However, local wildlife sites are non-statutory and their indication does not dictate how the land is to be managed.

In St Helens there are currently 116  local wildlife sites (PDF) [72KB] (opens new window)  and a further 11 sites of local geological importance; you can find details of these by ward below.
