Isle of Wight National Landscape
What is the Isle of Wight National Landscape?
Welcome to Isle of Wight National Landscape.
The start of a new chapter in the story of designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) in England and Wales.
The new name reflects our national importance: the vital contribution we make to help the nation combat the threats of climate change, nature depletion and the wellbeing crisis, whilst also creating greater understanding and awareness for the work of the whole National Landscapes family.
This is a significant milestone for the UK and the next step in fully realising our vision to be the national leaders in showing how thriving, diverse communities can work with and for nature in the UK: restoring ecosystems, providing food, storing carbon to mitigate the effects of climate change, safeguarding against drought and flooding, whilst also nurturing people’s health and wellbeing.
National Landscapes are places where people live and work and come to breathe. Places where our stories come to life. Discover the story of the UK’s National Landscapes and find out more about the work they do at www.national-landscapes.org.uk.
The Isle of Wight National Landscape is cared for by a dedicated partnership made up of national and local organisations.
