Ipswich Wildlife Group (IWG) is a registered charity, relying entirely on volunteers, that promotes interest in, and conservation of, wildlife and habitats in and around Ipswich.

Silver-studded Blues

We seek to inform and educate the local communities of Ipswich about the wildlife and habitats that can be found in the area, and the issues affecting them, as well as involve local people practical wildlife conservation.

To continue to do this, we need all the members & support that we can get (information about joining IWG).

Latest News & Photos

News of IWG events, activities and campaigns appear in the "Local Wildlife News" magazine , which carries news of many of the conservation organisations operating in and around Ipswich. It is published three times a year (currently Jan, May & Sept). Printed copies are delivered to IWG members.

IWG’s event programme can be found in the Green Living Centre "What's On" guide, along with details of events organised by many other local groups. Details of events also appear in LWN.

We also have a photo gallery on (opens new tab or window) which has a selection of stunning photos of wildlife that can be found around Ipswich, and photos of the conservation work that IWG volunteers carry out.

Homes for Wildlife

One way to make wildlife welcome in your garden, is by building a home for them, for example: a bug box, bird box or hedgehog box.

Downloadable plans and leaflets for a selection of wildlife homes and habitat features used by IWG, the Greenways Project and other local groups.
