It’s time to act! Pledge for Nature is a new campaign, launched early in 2020, that aims to support and encourage communities in northern Devon to help nature to flourish again.
The project invites individuals, schools, landowners, and businesses to join Seasonal Activities to tackle priority issues for nature’s recovery, with the ambition of securing more space and wilder areas in farmland, gardens, and green spaces.
“Activities will include creating flower and insect- rich habitats, planting new woodlands and making our rivers, hedges, gardens, and green spaces better for nature, the local economy, and for combating climate change”, explains Project Coordinator Bryony Paul.
More information about Pledge for Nature, Seasonal Activities and how to Create Your Pledge can found at www.biosphere.org.uk/pledgefornature .

Pledge for Nature is being coordinated by the North Devon Biosphere, a cross-sector partnership that is working to protect North Devon’s unique natural environment. It is financially supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Mardens Devon Cottages, Devon County Council and a successful Crowdfunder.
Everyone taking part is invited to help spread the word about Pledge for Nature by sharing pictures of completed pledges, using the hashtag #PledgeforNature via:
