BBC Wildlife magazine’s latest issue contained a 4 page spread discussing the subject of biodiversity net gain and featured a segment from our Chairman David Hill.
David discussed Environment Bank’s ambition for habitat banks with the aim of setting up 100 over the coming years as net gain becomes established.
Professor Hill mentioned that money currently spent on on-site mitigation will be much better used to create diverse, wild places on area that is currently intensively farmed.
Environment Bank are looking for landowners to help fulfill the ambition of providing large scale habitats across the country. If you are a landowner or organisation with conservation projects in mind that could benefit from this long term funding, contact us to discuss if your land might be suitable.
