Wildlife Riches on Humber Industry Land
09:00 - 15:00
The Ropewalk, Barton
Spare land on industrial sites can provide havens for wildlife safe from urban and farming activities.
Work in such areas around the Humber Estuary has benefited flora and fauna.
The need for such ‘stepping stones’, including for the adaptation to climate change, was recommended by the Lawton Report on Making Space for Nature, and recognised in the 2011 Environment White Paper and by the UK’s Natural Capital Committee.
The companies involved also benefit – many of the practical measures are low cost with the scope of engaging staff and volunteers.
Projects gain stakeholder interest contributing to corporate social responsibility and foster relations with local communities.
Find out more about how local companies such as BP and Total Lindsey Oil Refinery are making a home for nature.
After lunch there will be the opportunity for a guided visit around the nearby Far Ings National Nature Reserve formed from the worked out clay pits of the Barton tile and brick industry.
