Na­tional Trust helps wildlife

YOURS (UK) - - Our Shared Planet -

Crea­tures such as wa­ter voles and rare but­ter­flies, like this pur­ple ad­mi­ral, are to be given a help­ing hand af­ter the Na­tional Trust out­lined plans to cre­ate tens of thou­sands of acres of wildlife-friendly ar­eas. It aims to cre­ate 61,000 acres of new habi­tats by 2025. At least 50 per cent of its farm­land will be ‘na­ture-friendly’, with pro­tected hedgerows, field mar­gins, ponds, wood­land and other habi­tats – al­low­ing plants and an­i­mals to thrive.

One con­tent wa­ter vole who’s just heard about the Na­tional Trust plans!
