Waldringfield has a very rich wildlife. This is because it includes a stretch of the tidal river estuary, with important areas of salt marsh, mudflats and riverside grassland. This provides habitats for many species of plants, birds and mammals. The river has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
