New Activities

The OP Wildlife Project is running a session on ‘senses’ next week to show how wildlife understands and interacts with its environment (sorry all places are taken). We’ve organised a litter pick at the wildlife area with the local scout group, who have also offered to help with the autumn tree plant if we are lucky enough to be provided with a pack from the Woodland Trust.

Almost 60% of urban plant and animal species have declined – 35% seriously – since the 1970s, with the loss of gardens, sports fields and parks having an impact.

Animals like hedgehogs, bats and several urban bird species have suffered from the loss of connected wild areas, stopping them from moving from place to place.

Tim Muffett reports.
