This target has been set to support local action on the three biggest threats that our planet has ever faced; the ecological crisis, the climate crisis and the human health crisis, particularly the desperate disconnection of people with nature.
The Nature Recovery Fund will be used to buy land of low wildlife value, improve this land by restoring lost habitats and also reconnect people with nature. It will also help the Trust to help others do the same on their land and double the land managed for wildlife by 2030. In the past the focus was on saving special places, however this new land will be for the creation of new special places.
Thanks to some substantial recent donations and legacies, the Trust already has £1.5 million in the Nature Recovery Fund. This appeal aims to double this, to create a £3 million fund to bring back Warwickshire’s wildlife.
