Many supporters have already given to this latest appeal – ensuring A Rocha UK is just over a quarter of the way to target. However, that means there’s still a way to go before the charity can boost the Reserve Manager post from part-time to full-time.
Foxearth Meadows is literally ‘buzzing’ with life at this time of year, with dragonflies and damselflies zipping over shaded ponds while other insects and mammals go about their business and the uncommon hobby (falcon) flies overhead. But their presence is entirely dependent on the right kind of habitat.
‘During the last two years we’ve worked hard to maintain and improve the habitats at the reserve,’ said Marketing Manager Beverly Evans. ‘But much remains to be done. Our strategy goal of increasing declining species such as dragonflies and damselflies relies heavily on our conservation work.
‘Having a full-time Reserve Manager will make a big difference to how much we can achieve in 2018. Please help us to increase our work to conserve and improve this very special site.’
Supporters can send their donations to – A Rocha UK, 18-19 Avenue Road, Southall UB1 3BL – or donate online here.
Foxearth Meadows recently featured on the BBC’s hugely popular Countryfile programme. Presenter Ellie Harrison saw for herself the benefit A Rocha UK’s work is bringing to the 11-acre site – and viewers were able to follow her tour of the reserve. The show is available to watch for a limited time here.
