The role of lambs in nature
We look after a variety of different lambs. Many have intriguing appearances, like the Norfolk Horn which is black faced with spiralled horns, or the fluffy Oxford Down sheep which have chunky wool coats and black muzzles and ears. Volunteers and rangers also look after rarer breeds like the Jacob sheep. Lambs and sheep are vital to keeping the life cycle of wildlife going because they graze orchards and meadows, and keep wildlife habitats in tip-top condition. This helps us tackle invasive species of plants to allow rarer species a chance to grow and flourish, helping the biodiversity of gardens and parks we care for.
