Bio-diversity is a climate change issue

Rewilding group

Although it is not as obvious a connection as burning fossil fuels, bio-diversity is very much a climate change issue. Healthy eco-systems are nature’s own carbon capture and storage systems as well as providing lots of other benefits like flood reduction and mental well-being. That’s why we have a re-wilding group within Hope Valley Climate Action. 

We support locally initiated campaigns on tree planting, verge management, landscape burning, wildlife gardening, swift boxes, hedgehog surveys etc.  At the same time we are working to build a major rewilding coalition We aim to create a shared vision with local support for a nature based economy in the Hope Valley.

 We have contributed to the DEFRA consultation on the new Environmental Land Management Scheme (ELMS) which will pay farmers for public good instead of subsidising food production. It represents a big opportunity to help farmers adapt to climate change and to help mitigate it.
