Nominate you local wildlife heroes

There are just over two weeks left to nominate local wildlife heroes for a Norfolk Community Biodiversity Award 2016.

Nominations close on Friday, May 13, ahead of the awards ceremony, which will take place in Norwich in July.

Nominations can be for individuals, businesses, local groups and parish and town councils right across the county who are taking voluntary action to improve the local environment for nature. The awards will be judged on how their work has boosted biodiversity, got the local community involved and how the project will continue to bring benefits for years to come.

The awards focus on the voluntary efforts of individuals and groups, whose projects are not part of the daily work of any conservation organisation, and which benefit their local communities and local environment.

Last year there were 15 winners including Wild About Colby who set up an inspiring nest box boost project to help owls in North Norfolk.

The awards are sponsored by Kelling Heath Holiday Park (Inspiring Others Award); The Landscape Partnership (Parish and Town Councils Award); Norfolk Wildlife Trust (Churchyards and Cemeteries) and the Church of England Norwich Diocese.
