The Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) team has been working to develop new sustainable tourism activities, each designed to attract new and different visitors to the county, at times and in ways they normally wouldn't.
Wild Days Conservation www.wilddaysconservation.org were asked to establish a new range of wildlife conservation and research holidays on the Suffolk coast, that celebrate and showcase the interesting, quirky and the local, in addition to making a positive difference to the environment and contributing to wildlife research.
In their first year, 2016, there were three holidays trialled, and we are very pleased to confirm that further holidays were delivered introducing people to the Suffolk coast. For details of these holidays use this link.
As part of the development of these holidays, and funded by the Coastal Community Fund, Wild Days Conservation have been looking for people from the area with local knowledge and interest who are keen to join their leader team. People who will share their wildlife, ecological and local knowledge, and use their leadership and management skills to inspire new people to play a greater part in wildlife conservation in Suffolk. If this is something that would appeal to you, your staff or volunteers, then please get in touch! 01603 505731 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. This is an ongoing opportunity, so please see the 2016 leaflet below for information.
It's also very possible that your project/museum/reserve/society has something interesting to share with visitors? Visitor experiences could benefit from other general Suffolk coast interest too, so we'd love to know more if you think that's the case.
If you would like to know more, or discuss any of this further, Wild Days (Kathy & Andy) will be very glad to hear from you. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
The project development is supported by the Coastal Communities Fund
