NORTH DEVON BIOSPHERE - PLEDGE FOR NATURE PROJECT
Pledge for Nature is a campaign aimed at encouraging and supporting people to take action for nature. They are inviting individuals, community groups, schools, businesses and particularly farmers to pledge to tackle priority issues for nature's recovery. Every season new activities will be promoted from tree planting and installing bird boxes to creating wildflower patches and making space for nature in your garden. Visit their website: www.biosphere.org.uk/pledgefornature to see their pledge map and be inspired by what people in your community are already doing for nature. You can also add a pledge for volunteering and citizen science actions that you take.
