Our wildlife

In England and Wales, there is a huge variety of scenery and landscapes and those considered most valuable are protected as National Parks or AONBs. Cannock Chase AONB (6,800 hectares) was designated in 1958 because of its beautiful landscape, its wildlife and its history. Today, as well as being a living and working environment, the area is of vital importance from a nature conservation point of view. There are a wide variety of nature conservation designations in such a small area. This leaflet gives a flavour of some of the key habitats and species which help to make Cannock Chase AONB special.
