Ministry of Justice overview
The Ministry of Justice estate is one of the largest in government, including prison, probation and Home Office buildings and land. With a wide range of habitats, both inside and outside of secure areas, the MoJ Ecology team works with estates and facilities management to ensure biodiversity compliance and best practice, as well as promoting enhancement for habitats and species. This includes any site decommissioning or new build construction projects. The estate is constantly changing, which makes it a challenge to keep data up to date and relevant.
The MoJ Ecology team also has a number of partnerships to educate, inspire and support offenders and their wellbeing through ecological activities eg. bird box construction, pond creation, reptile survey.
