A Biodiversity Group is being formed within the Vision Group for Sidmouth to encourage native and local flora and fauna.
The newly formed Biodiversity Group will be supporting projects such as Sidmouth Beach Garden and creating projects such as the promotion of Living Roofs.
This group is in its infancy and anyone interested is warmly invited to contribute to its formation. The first meeting of the group took place in March 2014. We discussed various projects we could undertake and also various projects we could join! Keep an eye on future developments!
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) publishes information on their Joint Nature Conservation Committee website about national strategies intended to encourage biodiversity, both marine and land-based.
