Meet Louis and Zhinlap, both wardens for the Thames Basin Heaths Partnership. This local partnership consists of councils, land managers and nature conservation bodies. All dedicated to conserving local heathland.
In this short video taken on Whitmoor Common which forms part of Worplesdon group of commons, Louis and Zhinlap explain the importance of protecting our commons for current and future generations. They highlight a few tips on caring for nature including;
- Do not cause damage or disturbance. Leave rocks, stone, plants and trees as you find them and take care not to disturb wildlife including birds that nest on the ground.
- Stay on marked paths, even if they're muddy, unless wider access is available, such as on open access land. This helps to protect crops and wildlife.
