‘How to enhance biodiversity over the next decade’


In collaboration with other groups, the Vision Group is planning to put on an event later in the year looking at what we can do to help biodiversity in the Sid Valley over the next ten years.

Cameraman Simon Vacher is from the Sid Valley and has done some great work locally, for example:

As a wildlife cameraman, he has done some wonderful work in the South West and beyond – and this piece was filmed last summer for BBC One’s Inside Out. It looks at how biodiversity is being affected by climate change – and what we can do about it:
