Wildlife in Danger! This call to arms was made at a recent Louth Naturalists’, Antiquarian and Literary Society meeting by Paul Learoyd, Chief Executive of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust in his talk on The Future of Nature Conservation in Lincolnshire.
The recent flooding in the county had decimated many wildlife reserves including those at Donna Nook, Far Ings on the Humber Bank and Gibraltar Point. Urgent action was needed to repair these centres and improve their facilities.
For the future he envisaged renovating existing centres, establishing more of them and linking them together with wildlife corridors. These could simply be roadside verges or rivers and streams.
Even the North Sea was coming under the influence of wildlife societies to preserve the fish and the crustaceans which live on the bottom.
