Inchinnan Nature & Habitat Connectivity Project
We are pleased to announce that we have secured funding through the The National Lottery Community Fund 'Together for Our Planet' programme to develop a new project aiming to restore habitat connectivity in the area.
Changes to the use and management of land within Inchinnan has lead to the destruction of natural habitats and isolation of those which remain, leaving them disconnected from the wider environment and ecological networks across the region.
Using our funding from The National Lottery and working alongside an ecological consultancy we hope to gain insight into the state and distribution of Inchinnan’s local habitats. This will allow us to identify areas which have been badly affected by habitat loss and fragmentation - eventually being able to develop a plan for restoring these and developing new nature networks.
This will not only help to enhance the spaces which are so important to our local community but will prevent biodiversity decline, protect wildlife and create greater ecological resilience to the challenges that climate change and other environmental stresses present.
We will keep you updated with the progress of this project and what you can do to get involved.
