Charity plans to restore wildlife and history in Kew

A charity in south and west London has announced that they plan to repair the historic wall at the Kew Road Ha-ha and create a wildlife corridor.

The initiative is led by Habitats & Heritage, seeking to reinvigorate the patch’s wildlife and research its heritage, which has links to King George III and Queen Charlotte.

CEO of Habitats and Heritage Paul Jennings said that the charity had formed a ‘coalition of partners’ with specialists at Kew Gardens and councillors at Richmond council.

He said: “This is a project of the moment to look after biodiversity, try and reduce those declines in key species, and provide some habitat for them.”
