Speaker: Nicky Hoar
The Great Heath project has created two Nature Parks, with a third (Lytchett Bay) in the pipeline for 2017. The term Nature Park recognises the value of an area to both people and wildlife. Corfe Barrows is a varied landscape of woods, meadows and heaths, Holes Bay is a high-profile and busy area of Poole Harbour of great importance to wintering wildfowl while Lytchett Bay is a much quieter but no less important bay of Poole Harbour, with varied uses by local people and visitors. Nicky is a long-time serving DWT officer and has held a number of important posts supporting wildlife conservation and community engagement across the county.
