Nature Improvement Areas

A study has been compiled for the Biodiversity 2020 Terrestrial Biodiversity Group (TBG) which focused on 159 National Character Areas and the potential to add or restore habitats within these sites. As well as looking at how to achieve this, they assessed prescriptions to ensure that habitats could be restored without environmental conflicts of interest (for example saltmarsh creation on the same space as floodland grazing).

 

The Government has recently published a white paper called “The Natural Choice: Securing the Value of Nature”, a bold paper outlining a number of their goals and visions for the environment over the next fifty years. This is especially significant since it has been twenty years since the last Government White Paper. The main point made in this White Paper was that all of us play a role in maintaining our environment, and that we must all work together to ensure the goals are met.
