About the Group
Volunteering is becoming increasingly vital to wildlife conservation in the UK, as many public and private sector conservation organisations are operating with considerably reduced resources. Nature is a subject that fascinates many people, but all too often nature interest groups do little to help conserve wildlife and the natural environment.
The Strettons Area Community Wildlife Group (SACWG) aims to change this and make a real contribution to local wildlife conservation by surveying and monitoring threatened species and habitats. The data collected by the SACWG is collated into an annual report, which will provide a number of conservation recommendations. This report is provided to important bodies such as Shropshire Council, Shropshire Wildlife Trust, Natural England and the National Trust.
The SACWG is run by the community for the community, with support from professional ecologists and local species experts. It was launched in February 2012, with support from the Shropshire Hills AONB LEADER programme. The Group covers an area of 108 square kilometres around the Stretton Hills (see map above) and currently has over 70 members, who are helping to record and conserve wildlife in the Strettons area. New members are always welcomed. For more information please contact the SACWG secretary.
