Green Mantle supports and is actively involved in the delivery of the following conservation initiatives:
My Wild City
Led by Avon Wildlife Trust in partnership with Bristol City Council, with funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, the My Wild City project will focus on eight local wildlife sites in different neighbourhoods across Bristol, linking people living in the communities nearby with these spaces.
B-Lines are an imaginative and beautiful solution to the problem of the loss of flowers and pollinators. The B-Lines are a series of ‘insect pathways’ along which we are restoring and creating a series of wildflower-rich habitat stepping stones. They link existing wildlife areas together, creating a network, like a railway, that will weave across the British landscape. This will provide large areas of brand new habitat benefiting bees and butterflies– but also a host of other wildlife.
The Mendip Ponds Project
The aim of this project is to restore a network of ponds in the Mendip Hills AONB to expand and connect a number of isolated subpopulations of crested newts.This will be the first major attempt to implement landscape-level conservation for this protected species. The project area extends over 23km2, approximately 11% of the total AONB.
Routes to the River Tone
Routes to the River Tone project is connecting local people with the amazing wildlife of Taunton's waterways. Funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund and led by Somerset Wildlife Trust, this three year partnership project, inspires the communities of Taunton to see their town in a new light, and encourages them to explore the rich natural wealth it possesses.
Primary Education Programme
Large Blue Butterfly
Despite over 50 years of effort to halt its decline, the Large Blue butterfly was pronounced extinct in Britain in 1979. Today the butterfly can be found on 33 sites in the south-west of England. This is a tribute to a large-scale conservation programme underpinned by innovative science and implemented by a determined and broad partnership.
