29-02-2012 : NEW HAVEN FOR WILDLIFE IN BIRMINGHAM AND THE BLACK COUNTRY

Wildlife habitats will be protected in Birmingham and the Black Country due to a 650,000 pound grant.

The area experienced high ecological degradation during the industrial revolution and has been chosen to become a Nature Improvement Area, a NIA.

The grant will help to preserve and manage existing woodlands, heaths, streams and other wetlands in the area.

The NIA will be supported by 40 partner organisations, including five local authorities, the Black Country Consortium, British Waterways, Natural England, the Environment Agency, the Forestry Commission, RSPB, The Woodland Trust, Birmingham Open Spaces Forum, Black Country Geological Society, and voluntary groups such as the West Midlands Sustainability Forum, Birmingham Friends of the Earth, Birmingham Trees for Life.

Neil Wyatt, Chief Executive of The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and The Black Country, said This is wonderful news, the wildlife across Birmingham and the Black Country will be one of the first parts of a green network that will one day link across the whole of England .
