The idea behind Wildlife Connections is to promote the appreciation and conservation of British wildlife over a 5-year period. The aim is to engage thousands of people from different communities, getting them involved in wildlife conservation by ‘changing their behaviour in order to make positive impacts on their local environment’.
Participants will be encouraged to become wildlife champions by creating wildlife corridors to allow animals such as hedgehogs, frogs, bees and other small vertebrae free movement between gardens and public spaces, as well as planting habitats that encourage specific species to thrive.
The campaign is due to be rolled out early next year. Keep an eye on our blog and www.chesterzoo.org to see Wildlife Connections come to life.
