Charles in new commitment to Dales wildlife
THE PRINCE of Wales has committed to continue acting as a champion for conservation in the Yorkshire Dales.
Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust said Prince Charles had accepted their invite to extend his patronage of the charity.
The Royal has been the charity’s patron since it was set up in 1996. Since then, it has recruited more than 15,000 people to deliver projects worth over £30m, has planted 1.4 million native trees, restored more than 700 hectares of wildflower hay meadows and attracted some 40,000 people to nature and wildflower events.
David Sharrod, the trust’s chief executive, said: “HRH has a wonderful affiliation with this county and his support for wildlife and fauna is greatly appreciated by us. Knowing you have the Royal ‘seal of approval’ is really rather special.”
