Reimagining The Levels. A group of people who all live on the Somerset Levels and care passionately about its future. The devastating effects of the floods in 2013/14 to individuals, communities, the economy and the environment demonstrated the pressing need for a more joined-up approach that looks at the causes and solutions to flooding across the entire catchment.
RSPB Located in the Somerset Levels and Moors, the West Sedgemoor reserve is part of England's largest remaining wet meadow system. As such, it is home to large populations of breeding waders in the summer and wildfowl in winter.
Secret World Wildlife Rescue (SWWR) exists to relieve the suffering of British wildlife and to encourage respect and tolerance for wildlife. They do this by providing a rescue, rehabilitation and release service for injured, sick and orphaned wildlife; inspiring learning and sharing information about British wildlife and delivering professional training
Centre for Sustainable Energy The organisation brings people together to transform the energy system and tackle the climate emergency. By bringing people together to transform the energy system and tackle the climate emergency, they build their understanding and commitment to change. They work with organisations of all sizes, from city councils to community groups. They help them shape net zero ambitions, set priorities and put plans into action.
Somerset Waste Partnership. The Fixy representative will be, promoting volunteer-run repair groups and opportunities to get involved. They will also be accepting donations of unwanted smart tech for reuse, including laptops, tablets, mobile phones, digital cameras and other smart devices – data will be securely wiped by Donate IT before items are passed back into the community.
Somerset Wildlife Trust Their work over the decades has slowed the rate at which species have been lost, and has protected important habitats in Somerset but we must now take a more radical and urgent approach and involve many more people in acting locally for nature’s recovery. Small things add up to make a difference. But the challenges nature is facing are vast, so we are all going to have to think bigger, think bolder and take more action together to have the impact that’s needed.
Somerset Wildlands is developing a network of sites throughout the Levels. Each of these will be managed in as light-touch a way as is possible allowing nature to take the lead, and each will be subtly different. Rather than one big rewilded estate, over time this will create numerous ‘wild stepping stones’ - providing refuges and diversity within the overall landscape, and adding something to the existing mix of managed nature reserves and farmland.
The Woodland Trust Their aim is to protect ancient, veteran and valuable woods and trees, to stop the loss of irreplaceable habitat and carbon stores and preserve our natural heritage.
