10 stays in the UK that contribute to conservation projects
Protecting Britain’s kaleidoscope of ecosystems and wildlife is an increasingly urgent task. According to the 2019 State of Nature Report, more than 40 per cent of wildlife species in the UK have been in decline since 1970, and 97 per cent of wildflower meadows have been lost, mainly due to the effects of large-scale agriculture.
To move away from intensive use towards conservation, landowners need an alternative source of revenue, which is where tourism steps in. Offering sustainably minded travel experiences is a proven way for farmers to rewild their patch. It’s a win-win model that – given government spending on biodiversity has shrunk by almost half in the past decade – needs our support more than ever.
Thankfully, for those seeking natural beauty and solitude within our shores, showing support can be an inspiring mission. Here are 10 places to stay that will not only ensure a calming experience but contribute to critical conservation projects.
