The Conservation Area at the Science Park is a slice of nature at its best. It was designated in 1989 when the University of Southampton decided to protect 27 acres of the Chilworth Estate as a conservation resource. This Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC) contains a wide range of habitats, the result of a variety of historical uses and the underlying geological diversity. It is managed by Chilworth Conservation Ltd (CCL), a charitable company supported by the Science Park, Chilworth Manor and the University of Southampton.
