Valuing our natural heritage

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

Healey MP Meg Munn pledged to ‘value our natural heritage’ after meeting local nature conservation organisation Yorkshire Wildlife Trust (YWT) and the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) at an event at the House of Commons. The presentation was held to highlight the value of funding nature and supporting its recovery and showcased a number of Wildlife Trust projects funded by HLF.


Meg said:


“It was great to hear how HLF have helped fund Yorkshire Wildlife Trust projects which bring benefits for wildlife and local people. This shows what can be done when we value our natural environment. 


I look forward to our Wildlife Trusts and the Heritage Lottery Fund continuing to work closely together to protect and restore our natural heritage.”


Stephanie Hilborne OBE, Chief Executive of The Wildlife Trusts, said:


 “We warmly welcome the support that HLF has given to Wildlife Trusts over 16 years. We also welcome the support shown by parliamentarians.  With an uncertain economic future, we look forward to funding streams that protect and restore nature continuing.”


Carole Souter CBE, Chief Executive of the Heritage Lottery Fund, said:


“Over the past 16 years the Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded around 100million towards Wildlife Trust projects.  This forms part of our wider commitment of 390million to more than 3,000 projects which support nature conservation across the UK. 


We are now consulting on the future of Lottery funding for heritage, asking people to tell us what they think our priorities should be, what we should continue to do, and what we should do differently.  Over the next few years the amount of money we will have available for heritage will increase to around 300million and we want to know how people think we should use it.”
