Wilder Communities – in the Sid Valley

“… to inspire and enable the creation of wildlife-friendly villages, parishes, towns and cities to support nature’s recovery in Devon.”

There’s a new initiative from the Devon Local Nature Partnership – as part of its strategy on building a Nature Recovery programme for the county:

Wild About Devon – in the Sid Valley – Vision Group for Sidmouth

.

There’s a parallel initiative from Devon Wildlife Trust

Our mission is to bring Devon’s wildlife back across landscapes, rivers and seas.

By 2030, we want to see at least 1 in 4 people actively engaged with wildlife and we want everyone in Devon to make action for nature’s recovery part of their daily life. A key part of this will be to mobilise community action; to inspire and enable the creation of wildlife-friendly villages, parishes, towns and cities to support nature’s recovery in Devon.

And as of next month, they “will be working actively with communities.”

The Sid Valley Biodiversity Group are in touch with the DWT and the ‘Wilder Communities Devon’ team, to help put together a Nature Recovery Plan for the Sid Valley – looking at survey priorities for 2022, which in turn will lead a plan on developing habitats and species:
