Center Parcs, a UK-based company that operates holiday parks, has announced that it will be working for the conservation of the forests and woodlands of Britain.
The company has commenced an initiative that involves planting 50 tonnes of Norfolk Reed in certain waterways at Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire, as part of its conservation efforts. The company is also organising Bird watching, nature walks and assorted conservation-related activities at all of its holiday parks, as part of the project.
If the reed beds evolve and expand successfully, it is hoped that rare species may begin to nest there, including Bearded Tits and Bitterns.
The company has also been planting orchards of fruit trees, including apple, cherry and plum, which provide natural habitats for Bullfinches and Thrushes. The company is planting hedgerows to attract Linnet, Yellow Hammer and Bullfinch to the area.
