Exmoor and Plymouth nature projects receive funding from Natural England
Natural England have announced that six nature projects across England, including projects in Exmoor and Plymouth, will receive funding.
These projects will restore landscapes across England and assess how carbon is captured and stored across different habitats such as grasslands, forests, wetlands and hedgerows.
The Wild Exmoor Carbon Sequestration project will receive almost £1 million to restore and protect coastal woodland, heathland habitats, species rich grassland and wood pasture.
Plymouth’s Natural Grid Nature Based Solutions for Climate Change at the Landscape Scale project will receive around £1 million to restore natural habitats and create local solutions to climate change in the urban environment through wood pasture, species rich grassland and woodland creation, salt marsh restoration and floodplain mosaic habitat creation.
