Wednesday November 15, 2017 saw the official launch of one of the most ambitious conservation programmes in England – Back from the Brink.
Project partners, volunteers and other distinguished guests met at Windsor Great Park to celebrate the launch of the programme, which aims to bring 20 species back from the brink of extinction.
This is the first nationwide coordinated effort to bring a wide range of leading charities and conservation bodies together to save threatened species.
The Trust species recovery project is focused on the Shrill carder bumblebee(Bombus sylvarum) and is being delivered jointly with Buglife. It will develop a new Shrill carder bee Species Recovery Plan, provide landowner advice to ensure existing sites with Shrill carder bee are being appropriately managed and identify further opportunities for beneficial habitat restoration and creation.
