We’re asking the community to fill out our Nature Recovery Survey to help inform the islands’ first Nature Recovery Strategy.
Having a Local Nature Recovery Strategy in place is one of the requirements of the Environment Act 2021. The strategy will set out how and where we intend to increase opportunities to recover or enhance biodiversity, in terms of habitats and species.
We want to know what you would like to see considered for inclusion in the strategy, whilst collating your ideas on how we can best support nature in Scilly. This could include anything from enhancing open spaces, sports fields, verges, and churchyards to create havens for bees, butterflies, birds, bats and the Scilly shrew, or the introduction of more wildflower meadows, ponds, hedges, trees and shrubs around the islands.
You can find the survey link on the following page of the Council website: scilly.gov.uk/nature-recovery-survey
The survey closes at noon on Thursday, 31 March 2022.
If you, or someone you know, cannot complete the survey online or require a copy of the survey in another language or format, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0300 1234 105 (option 5).
We look forward to hearing from you!
