If funding is successful, further community improvement programmes can be implemented with education centres, arts and craft areas and outdoor facilities encompassing the local wildlife into a tranquil retreat. Specialist bird hives, bat bunkers and reed beds can be used to attract protected species into these decimated areas of wasteland, improving the overall biodiversity action plan set out by local authorities.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The future of biodiversity is looking grim, with increasing global temperatures yearly along with the population increases. Areas such as quarries present an opportunity to transform areas that are usually derelict and abandoned, into an area in which biodiversity can flourish. There are less green areas that are truly native in terms of flora and fauna present and quarries are the perfect areas for re-development of natural wildlife. The education side of these developments also helps students consider the future impact of development on the biodiversity that we take for granted in the UK.
Steps to get it done:
If successful, these green areas can also provide local amenities such as outdoor gyms, leisure activities (nature walks, bird watching), as well as being used for conventions for local art installations, environmental management conferences and everything ecology.
