Yorkshire Coast Residents Asked To Celebrate Nature

Yorkshire Coast Residents Asked To Celebrate Nature

Published by Karen Liu at 1:55pm 6th July 2020.

The RSPB is asking residents in East Yorkshire to share how nature has supported them during lockdown. 

Until the 31st July, the RSPB is inviting people to share the new things they have noticed that’s different in their world, and what they have started to value more during these times as part of a nationwide celebration of nature and wildlife. 

Adam Murray, Head of Community Empowerment at the RSPB, said:

“Connecting with the natural world is more important than ever. Over the last few months, as we juggled work, family life and wellbeing, all from the confines of home, the natural world became a playground, a gym, a tonic, and much more besides. But while our lives have changed, the threats to nature have not gone away. 

We’d love you to share the new things you have noticed and started to appreciate more in your world – large and small. Whether it’s cleaner air, the wildlife in your local park or getting creative in your support of the natural world, we’d love to hear about it. We want to know what you’ve started to value during these strange times.” 

Nature enthusiast, Daisy Hughes, said:

“I’ve noticed that some of my nearby verges are being mown less often, meaning they’re full of ox-eye daisies, orchids, dandelions, trefoil and clovers – gorgeous, amazing for pollinators and absolute oases for insects in a heavily built-up area! Would love to keep it like this after lockdown wherever growth doesn’t obstruct road view – would be great to see councils following “no-mow May”.
