Canvey Wick

Canvey Wick is a 93.2 hectare Site of Special Scientific Interest on Canvey Island in Essex. Rich in plants, insects and animals, there are as many species per square metre here as there are in a rainforest. As such, it's one of the most important British sites for endangered invertebrates. The RSPB manage 18.5ha of the SSSI as a nature reserve in partnership with Buglife and on behalf of the Land Trust.
