Wildlife Riches on Humber Industrial Land
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, and industry. 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. This conference showcases projects undertaken around the Humber.
