“I’m so proud of the team that manages Glasgow LivingWater, our first project north of the border,” said Kathy. “As well as creating and improving the landscape for wildlife, they also led training and volunteering days to involve the local community in protecting these vital habitats. It was fantastic to be recognised in the shortlist from so many excellent projects, and great to come highly commended.”
The winner of the category and of the Awards as a whole was the Flitton Moor Action for Biodiversity project in Bedfordshire. Entirely run by volunteers, this project also improved the habitat and raised awareness amongst locals about a Local Nature Reserve.
“Going to the Awards really reminded me that there is a lot of great work being done across the UK to improve biodiversity and empower people to get involved in conservation,” added Kathy. “I’d like to say a big thank you to Biffa Award for supporting Froglife, and congratulations to everyone else who was shortlisted.”
