Good news for the UK.. under the government’s new 25-year environment plan they are planning to restore the equivalent of 30,000 football pitches into wildlife rich habitats.
There are currently 15 national parks around the UK and this 25-year scheme is set to clean up pollution, create areas of woodland and restore wetland.
It is hoped this scheme will help provide shelter for species such as the Curlew, Nightingale, Horseshoe Bat, Pine Marten, Red Squirrel and Wild Orchids.
The government are hoping this will improve public health and wellbeing with access to more open spaces. It will also help us adapt to the changing climate ensuring there are always supplies of clean water and protecting our future food security.
We cant wait to see the results!
