Actions to tackle climate change
Our climate is changing, and we need to change with it.
In the UK and internationally people are experiencing the effects of climate change. Governments, local and parish councils, tourist boards even companies are all now declaring climate and ecological emergencies acting and encouraging others to act for the planet.
Habitats for water vole in the Severn vale and ground-nesting birds such as avocet and curlew at Coombe Hill are under threat due to increased flooding and unpredictable weather. Brown trout are in danger due to increased rate of flash flooding in Bibury. Here at GWT, we are working at alleviating the pressures of climate change using methods such as: natural flood management, rain gardens and encouraging wetland creation.
