Wildlife Trust Awards for local wildlife heroes

Local action to help wildlife and the environment are at the heart of the work of the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust. The charity, which has been promoting and protecting the county’s wildlife for over fifty years is keen to recognise efforts to care for the local environment within communities across Nottinghamshire through its Wildlife on your Doorstep Awards, supported by CEMEX UK and EDF Energy, (Cottam & West Burton).

The Wildlife Trust is calling for nominations for individuals, groups, schools and businesses which are making an effort in the local community to protect or promote wildlife.

Last year’s winners were drawn from across the county and included Creswell Crags, Gotham Sand Banks Nature Reserve Trust, the 1st Woodthorpe Guides Wildlife Watch Group and representatives from The Friends of Gedling Country Park.

To submit a nomination, simply send details about the person or project to Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust. There are no complicated forms to fill in.  Speaking about the Wildlife on Your Door Step Awards, Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust’s Head of Communications Erin McDaid said: “Local action and local volunteering are at the heart of what we do and we are keen to recognise local efforts to help wildlife. With these awards there are no complicated forms to fill in, all people have to do is tell us, in a few hundred words, what they, or someone else, is doing in their local community to help wildlife.”

Awards are available in all areas of the county so there is plenty of opportunity to win. Erin continued: “Each year we make awards across the county, highlighting local people and projects whether they are from Bassetlaw, Broxtowe, Newark or the City of Nottingham. So wherever you live in the county, if you know of someone that deserves recognition for what they do to help wildlife on their doorstep, then please let us know.
