Wild About Devon is a new initiative that has been set up by the Local Nature Partnership to help communities and Parish and Town Councils take action for wildlife and help tackle the ecological and climate emergencies.
There are lots of inspiring examples of communities taking action for wildlife across Devon (Teignbridge Wildlife Wardens, Life on the Yealm and Moor Meadows to name a few) but no central place to connect them together to share learning, network and inspire others.
Information and expertise currently sits within lots of different organisations, groups and initiatives (Woodland Trust, DWT, Devon Living Churchyards, Devon Birds etc) and it is often hard to know where to start when looking for guidance and support. Wild About Devon has been set up by LNP partners to fill this gap and hep us all to create a Nature Recovery Network across Devon.
There are lots of helpful tips and guidance on the Wild About Devon page, including a community toolkit, links to discussion forums and a community action map to help connect up the dots and see who is doing what! You can find all this and much more here.
