Slugs and Snails


You might think that all slugs and snails are pretty much the same, but there are actually around 150 species in the UK!

Slugs and snails may not have the best reputation, but they play a vital role as decomposers and recyclers. They are also an important food source for other wildlife, including birds, frogs and beetles. So lift up that leaf, pick up that plant pot, and see which ones you have in your garden. 

Find out how you can encourage more molluscs into your backyard and download our Wild About Gardens guide, including identification sheets.
