Wild Gloucestershire campaign launched to promote biodiversity


Gloucestershire County Council

A campaign has been launched by Gloucestershire County Council to promote local biodiversity and encourage residents to make their gardens more wildlife-friendly.

The Wild Gloucestershire campaign, run by the council’s sustainability team, aims to encourage people to make changes to their green spaces so wildlife and biodiversity can thrive. Whether you have a sunny windowsill or a large garden, the campaign gives residents plenty of ideas and tips on how to help support local biodiversity and wildlife from home.

Residents are being invited to make their residential and commercial gardens more wildlife-friendly by adding wildlife water stations, bug hotels and creating wild areas in the garden. They are also being encouraged to grow their own fruit and veg. The campaign also aims to promote the fantastic 30 Days Wild project run by the Wildlife Trust, which encourages people to spend time in nature every day throughout June.
Cllr David Gray, cabinet member for environment and planning, said: “I encourage residents to get involved in this campaign, by sowing wildflowers, growing their own food and making their gardens more wildlife-friendly and biodiverse. By working together, we can make a real difference to the local environment and create a Greener Gloucestershire.”
