Biodiversity Recovery

Live Here Love Here Nature Recovery

The state of our natural world is alarming. A staggering 11% of 2,450 species assessed on the island of Ireland face the threat of extinction, endangering the biodiversity that gives our planet its unique character. This, in turn, poses a severe danger to our food security and the proper functioning of our ecosystems.

Thankfully, there is a lot we can do to halt this harmful trend. By utilising all of our garden and community spaces in the United Kingdom, we can create green corridors that provide the necessary resources for native flora and fauna to flourish. These areas, when cared for correctly, can offer essential food, shelter, and habitats, which would help bolster our wildlife population and ensure a healthy and thriving natural world.
