Appeal: Help us show that Christians care for God’s earth

26 October 2017, Comments Comments Off on Appeal: Help us show that Christians care for God’s earth

Massive changes mean massive opportunities. As Britain prepares to leave the EU, critical policies may challenge UK nature. If we can show that our projects work and people support them, we can make a difference. So we’re asking for your help.

It’s vital that we unite communities to care for their environment. It’s vital that Christians lead the way, as a core expression of faith. It’s our hope that A Rocha UK will become their place of inspiration and provision for that work.

Rare find at Foxearth Meadows

31 August 2017, Comments Comments Off on Rare find at Foxearth Meadows

It’s a rare treat – and it’s turned up at our nature reserve Foxearth Meadows! The variable damselfly hasn’t been seen in the region since the end of World War II.

According to the British Dragonfly Society, the variable damselfly is scattered but uncommon across mainland Britain. And despite being well known from a handful of sites, the species’ distribution still remains ‘something of an unravelled mystery’, said the BDS.

So it’s not surprising our Conservation Director Andy Lester is over the moon about our latest visitor! ‘Once again it’s exciting news for a site that’s recently been labelled as one of the best places to see dragonflies in the UK by BBC Wildlife magazine,’ said Andy. ‘Indeed, the site has appeared in numerous publications over the past few weeks – both local and national – and featured on BBC’s Countryfile programme.’
