We shall welcome Jaz Atkinson, who is Wildlife Communities Officer at the Devon Wildlife Trust. She will tell us about the Exeter Wild City project. Working closely with Exeter City Council, the project aims to:
- Support and advise on community wildlife initiatives in the city
- Enhance and protect the wildlife value of green space in the city
- Provide opportunities for people to experience and enjoy our amazing urban wildlife
Exeter Wild City
Why do we need it?
Exeter is striking proof that cities can be the homes to abundant wildlife. But, as everywhere, wildlife is under threat. The city now has a human population of 120,000 – and it’s growing. We want to ensure that Exeter‘s future development will protect its wildlife and give it space to thrive.
Contact with nature and wildlife is also hugely important for people; quite simply, contact with our natural environment makes us happy! The project works with people across the city on projects that are great for wildlife and, importantly, improve our quality of life too.
If you would like to come to the talk, please contact Susie by 18 March. We shall meet for lunch from 12 noon.
