When Russell Fisher moved to a small Oxfordshire village parish after a long time living in London he realised that the wildlife around him was intrinsic to his way of life. He quickly signed up to Naturehood.
“Living in a rural part of the country, our local farmers have found ways to work with and not against local wildlife. Generally, people are supportive of local wildlife and are interested to encourage wildlife in their gardens. There are always ways to improve biodiversity however, which I think can be achieved through the Naturehood project.”
Russell says that Naturehood has given him a way to connect with other like-minded individuals in his locality.
“The love of wildlife binds communities and helps individuals come together to lobby for better green policies” he says.
