Enhancement of important sites for nature
The Meres and Mosses landscape contains some of the most important sites for conservation in the UK. Much of this is protected nationally as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) and internationally as Special Areas for Conservation (SAC) and Ramsar sites, although many of the sites that are key to the wildlife in this area have no protection whatsoever and even those with protections are largely declining in quality. A partnership of charities and statutory authorities are working hard to enhance and restore these sites by work such as engaging specialist contractors, introducing traditional grazing management and inspiring volunteers to turn out and get stuck in.
By becoming a Supporter of the Meres and Mosses Business Environment Network or sponsoring a project, your business will help to ensure that the wonderful wildlife attracted to these sites is secured for future generations.
