Conservation in the News 2009

Some interesting conservation and wildlife articles in the news:

Garden wildlife better than countryside - Daily Mail 9/9/2009

South Downs National Park

Stretching from the south coast at Eastbourne to the edge of Winchester taking in the most beautiful chalk downland, the villages of Kings Worthy, Headbourne Worthy, Abbots Worthy and Martyr Worthy all cross into or are totally within the the park.  Not quite sure what it means to conservation and in particular our activities but it is still nonetheless very exciting.  I will create a special page just for this (coming soon!), in the meantime visit these links:
