A Rocha UK works with individuals and communities, encouraging them to think about their use of the environment and develop practical ways to care for people and the planet, locally and globally.
As well as a number of local conservation projects and partnerships, A Rocha UK continues to work at Minet Country Park, which was inspired, developed and launched in partnership with the London Borough of Hillingdon. Minet now hosts a science-based internship programme, bird ringing, and habitat management work. To date, more than 5,000 children have visited the park for A Rocha UK eco-education events.
Building on this experience, work has also started to transform a second urban site – Wolf Fields, in Norwood Green – into a haven for local wildlife and people, including a community orchard, allotments, a pond, bee hives and a sensory garden.
