Flagship Species

What do we mean by a flagship species?

Caring for God’s Acre Flagship Species are 6, charismatic, popular species of plants and animals which catch the imagination and serve as symbols to encourage the sensitive care of churchyards and burial sites.

Which species have been selected? 

Yew trees   Waxcap fungi   Bumblebees   Slow worms   Swifts   Hedgehogs 

How will we help them?

We are working with partner organisations to learn more about these flagship groups and to encourage people to find them, look after them and let us, and our partners know.
