Natural England says that England's most familiar landscapes, their wildlife and habitats, will experience wide-ranging changes in the face of climate change. Natural England's Character Area Climate Change project identified the local responses required to safeguard the natural environment and enjoyment of it, taking four specific character areas in England that represented contrasting habitats and landscapes (Cumbria High Fells, Shropshire Hills, Dorset Downs and Cranbourne Chase and the Broads). Reports on each area concluded that significant changes to land management practices are needed to allow the natural environment to adapt, and suggested practical actions that would make these areas more resilient to climate change.
