The Million ponds project is a 50 - year project to create a network of clean water ponds for freshwater wildlife. It aims to reverse a century of loss and decline in Britain's ponds, so that once again we have a million ponds in the British countryside.
The project will bring clean water back to many landscapes and create vital new wildlife habitats. In the first four years, the project partners and others will make a network of 5,000 clean water ponds across England and Wales.
These ponds will provide a home for at least half of all Britain's freshwater species and over 80 priority plants and animals under the UK's Biodiversity Action Plan.
To find out more about this project please go to Million ponds website at www.pondconservation.org.uk/millionponds or contact Rebecca Good on firstname.lastname@example.org before 13th March.
