Practical Conservation

ConservationPage960

A Rocha UK is actively engaged in practical local conservation work – many exciting new projects and partnerships are coming to a place near you!

As well as new initiatives, A Rocha UK continues to work at Minet Country Park – part of our inaugural 'Living Waterways' conservation project – which was inspired, developed and launched in partnership with the London Borough of Hillingdon. Minet now hosts a science-based internship programme, bird ringing, and habitat management work. To date, more than 5,000 children have visited the park for A Rocha UK eco-education events.

Building on our experience and success at Minet Country Park, we have recently commenced work to transform a second urban site – Wolf Fields, in Norwood Green – into a haven for local wildlife and people. Our vision for Wolf Fields includes a community orchard, allotments, a pond, bee hives and a sensory garden.

We think these kinds of activities are an expression of Christian hope and mission – see Why We Do It.
