We were delighted that Landulph Parish Climate Action Group (LPCAG) was invited by Landulph School to speak at their Eco Day in May. The school was hosting an event attended by students from other school councils across the region focussing on what can be done to look after the environment and what and how they can make changes to their schools and in their local areas to be more eco-friendly. LPCAG was able to share our knowledge on the importance of protecting the biodiversity and special habitats around us and we looked at some of the important wildlife that is under threat, but which we are lucky to have in our local area, including the curlew, hedgehogs and our summer visitors, the swifts!
We discussed the actions we are taking including planting trees, litter picking, reducing plastic waste and looking for areas to rewild and attract more insects and wildlife. The students were given some practical tips on some of the small changes they can make at school and at home which can make a big difference, including allowing a patch of wildflowers to grow, providing fresh water for wildlife to drink, and encouraging habitats such as log piles and bug hotels.
