Some of the UK’s most breathtaking landscapes will be converted into national parks and AONBs to help protect the country’s rich biodiversity, the government has announced.
As part of their 25-year environmental plan, the project is expected to restore the equivalent of 30,000 soccer fields in wild life, eliminate pollution, create forest areas and restore wetlands.
While there are currently 15 national parks across the UK – including the South Downs in Sussex, the New Forest, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales – these ambitious plans will continue to materialize over a period of 25 years, giving everyone the chance to freshen up in nature.
Ingeniously, there is also hopes that this program will help protect species such as curlew, nightingale, horseshoe bat, pine marten, squirrels and wild orchids.
