    What is the project all about?

    The project aims to reduce re-offending by giving ex-offenders and young people who are at risk of offending the opportunities to gain new skills in the wildlife conservation sector.

    The Key Features of the Project:

    The project will give participants the opportunity to take part in a 3-6 month structured programme of learning and development focused on conservation skills.

    Participants will be involved in:

    – conservation skills at Camley Street Natural Park ( Learning basic skills required for safe land management including health and safety, risk assessment
    and manual handling, Training in horticulture, practical urban wildlife gardening)

    -conservation skills at London Wildlife Trust nature reserves ( Scrub clearance, Woodland management, Fencing, Using petrol driven machinery)

    – Wildlife on your Waterways Project which focuses on management of the Regents canal between Camden Lock and Islington tunnel. It aims to monitor and survey the existing habitat found along the canal, bringing improvements to the environment and raising awareness of this unique urban waterway.
