Projects

Green Mantle supports and is actively involved in the delivery of the following conservation initiatives:

B-Lines

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.

Living Landscapes

A Living Landscape is a recovery plan for nature championed by The Wildlife Trusts since 2006. It is a new way of thinking about how we manage land to do more for wildlife, people and the economy.

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

Our curriculum-linked learning programme gets children outdoors, captivates them in the wonders of wildlife and encourages them to investigate and appreciate the natural world.

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.
