Wild Ipswich goes live!

‘Wild Ipswich’ was officially launched at the Belstead Brook Park Big Wildlife Challenge on Sunday 11th June.

Conservation groups who work in and around Ipswich have joined together to agree a vision and set of objectives to make Ipswich even better for wildlife into the future.

“It is only be working together that we will be able to protect the wildlife we have and improve and link habitats to increase the range of species in the town”, said James Baker, the Greenways Countryside Project manager.

To see the vision and find out how you can get involved and support all the organisations working for wildlife – please visit the new (under construction) website at: wildipswich.org – or click on the screenshot below:
