Habitats across the Trent Vale have significant regional and national wildlife value, many in isolated pockets while others cover wide areas of grassland meadow and wetland hosting a diverse range of species.

Partners working in the Trent Vale are creating new habitats and enhancing existing ones to improve the landscape for wildlife, including creating, restoring or managing hundreds of hectares of new grassland and reedbed. Farmers, landowners and community groups are also being encouraged to manage their land for wildlife through the Trent Vale grants scheme. This work all contributes to increasing diversity and makes the Trent Vale more suitable for key species such as otter and water vole.
