World around Us

It's easy to forget how fortunate we are in Herefordshire to be surrounded by so much natural beauty. It's all too easy to take it all for granted.

However, the demands made by agriculture, industry, house building and road development together with an increasing lack of funds for conservation agencies and organisations to carry out their work, means that our natural environment may become more and more under threat.



There are links below highlighting some of the issues facing the natural environment today, as well as details of organisations that work towards protecting it, and who are often keen to take up offers of voluntary assistance!
