The LettsSafari Network of Parks is Expanding
LettsSafari has rapidly grown its network of eco rewilding parks - join us!
The LettsSafari Network of Parks has grown to 6 eco safari parks. We launched the LettsSafari Network of Parks just 12 months ago to support and develop private rewilding parks - initially across the UK and then more widely. The British government has pledged to restore 30% of its land for wilder nature by 2030. We are a long way from achieving that target. Rewilding smaller parks, gardens and green spaces can help to change this. As the LettsSafari Network of Parks expands we can contribute more to achieving this vital target, gradually reversing the biodiversity crisis and the wider impacts of climate change.
From our first LettsSafari park at Dawlish Park, we have added 5 more parks in the last 12 months - the beginning of a solid network.
Tomorrow our network of parks could be international and more expansive in nature. Each park will be unique in its own special way - unique by design, unique by approach and by the difference that it makes. All focused on one thing - reversing the biodiversity crisis.
Today, though, we already make quite a difference - supporting 6 amazing parks doing incredible things.
After our first park, Dawlish Park, came Sunrise Park and the extraordinary rewilded Capability Brown gardens on the outskirts of Exeter - creating the model for safari gardens.
Following this came the fascinating, small, but high impact project at Hill Crest and most recently the exciting community-based rewilding project at Embercombe with Devon Wildland.
We are excited to support Devon Wildland, which is a coming together of people and land across the Haldon Hills, Teign Valley and surrounding areas of mid Devon, who are making more space for nature. The initiative is to create a network of local wilder sites connected in both the physical landscape but also through people who will share experience, resources and ideas.
Combined, the LettsSafari Network of Parks host tens of thousands of trees, hundreds of endangered wildlife species, kilometres of hedgerows, thousands of diverse plants, wildflowers, grasses, trees, shrubs and scrub. Combined they remove many tonnes of carbon for their respective areas and already impact pollution levels with cleaner air and water. Each park continues to expand its habitats and levels of biodiversity.
You get to visit them online and experience these eco havens as members of LettsSafari. In 2023 we plan to do more to develop our groundbreaking network of parks while working to expand the community of eco park owners and managers and the climate enthusiasts that help to make this all happen.
Who knows what kind of park will join our network in the future?
Or what kind of wildlife they will nurture and protect?
Our network helps private and public landholders to implement the correct smaller-scale rewilding techniques and even create a full blown LettsSafari park should they wish. The various park managers and owners receive advice and support and can sign up to our re-planting and herbivore programmes. We also share experiences and approaches. You visit them at LettsSafari +.
Join the LettsSafari Network of Parks.
If you know anyone who has a 20+ acre park and would like to join the LettsSafari Network of parks – please help spread the word. It could make a real difference. One we can all continue to experience and get inspired by.
