The Broads National Park is Britain’s largest protected wetland and is home to a quarter of the UK’s rarest species. A haven for wildlife and an archaeological treasure trove, the Broads’ significance locally, nationally and internationally cannot be underestimated. 55 public and private partner organisations have come together to deliver the most ambitious and far-reaching programme yet dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the Broads.

  3. To protect and enhance heritage assets at risk; to discover, record and protect waterlogged archaeological assets
  4. To create and connect habitat corridors to strengthen our ecological networks; to improve land and water management regimes to adapt to climate change and development pressures
