康沃爾七國集團:交付26個綠色項目

自康沃爾郡主辦七國集團首腦會議以來的一年裡,總共有26個綠色項目在康沃爾郡交付使用。

尤斯提斯先生說。"我們已經改善了林地谷農場的綠地通道,並在戈斯摩爾恢復了稀有物種的栖息地。

"明年,康沃爾郡將繼續引領支持自然的項目,包括恢復林地和解決入侵物種。"

英格蘭自然基金會和康沃爾野生動物信託基金正與其他合作夥伴一起工作,以實現第二年的項目,這些項目的資金已經得到保證。

它們包括恢復6.5公頃的土地,作為Bokiddick濕地恢復計劃的一部分,通過連接一條溪流和洪泛區,加上修復Luxulyan山谷上游的1公里小路。

G7遺產項目還尋求開展基線調查,以檢查海草、海藻和其他水下植物等藍碳來源的狀況。

第一年的成功包括一個項目,其中Imerys公司從地面上提取中國粘土,在康沃爾郡內擁有10,000英畝的土地,恢復了酸性草地,改善和恢復了罕見的石楠地區域,並引入了保護性放牧。

另一個是在林地谷農場為所有人,包括輪椅使用者,改善了接觸自然的機會。用可回收材料製成的木板路現在可以觀看康沃爾海狸項目,五年前海狸就在這裡被釋放。

自然英格蘭的地區經理韋斯利-斯邁思說。"項目的多樣性意味着每個人都能得到滿足,從投資學徒等人到顧問,通過改善自然小徑和停車場投資於更好地接觸自然,到投資於恢復和栖息地重建,使脆弱的物種從邊緣回歸。"


A total of 26 green projects have been delivered in Cornwall in the year since it hosted the G7 summit.

Mr Eustice said: "We have already improved access to green spaces at Woodland Valley Farm and restored habitats for rare species at Goss Moor.

"In the next year, Cornwall will continue to lead the way in supporting nature with projects including the restoration of woodland and tackling invasive species."

Natural England and Cornwall Wildlife Trust are working alongside other partners to deliver the second year's projects for which funding has been secured.

They include restoring 6.5 hectares as part of the Bokiddick wet woodland restoration scheme by connecting a stream to the floodplain, plus repairing a 1km trail upstream of the Luxulyan Valley.

The G7 Legacy Project also seeks to carry out baseline surveys to check the status of blue carbon sources like seagrass, algae and other underwater plants.

Successes from the first year include one project in which Imerys, which extracts China clay from the ground and has 10,000 acres of land within Cornwall, has recovered acid grassland, improved and restored rare heathland areas and introduced conservation grazing.

Another was the improvement of access to nature for all, including wheelchair users, at Woodland Valley Farm. A boardwalk made of recyclables now allows viewing of the Cornwall Beaver Project at the farm where beavers were released five years ago.

Wesley Smyth, area manager of Natural England, said: "The variety of projects means there is something for everyone, from investing in people like apprentices to advisors, investing in better access to nature through improved nature trails and car parks to investing in recovery and habitat recreation to bring vulnerable species back from the brink."
