Verges for Wildlife
Sadly, the UK is listed as the worst nation in the G7 for the volume of wildlife and wild spaces lost due to human activity, resulting in it being ranked twelfth worst of 240 countries and territories.
With over 97% of wildflower meadows destroyed since the 1930s, road verges are a vital refuge for bees, butterflies, birds, bats and bugs. The loss of biodiversity is one of the largest threats to our own survival and our verges could really help in our endeavours to make the UK richer in wildlife.
