Warwickshire Wildlife Trust is really pleased to see the return of this Bill which will pave the way for new laws relating to agriculture. Approximately 70% of Warwickshire is agricultural land and we recognise the vital role farmers can play in nature and our climate’s recovery.
We work alongside farmers to help make space for nature through our Arden Farm Wildlife Network which covers over 9,500 hectares of land. In addition, through our partnership project with Severn Trent we engage farmers in the Upper Avon and Leam river catchments, working with countless more on natural flood management and grazing projects throughout the county. We know that farming policy can provide the catalyst to kick start nature’s recovery and we are ready to support farmers in the transition which will take place.
