Within Wye Ruin It? and our partner anti-bypass groups we are very concerned about all manner of wildlife along the route. Our lead researcher, Dr Nichola Geeson has produced a report specifically relating to the riverbank habitats by the River Wye SAC, and has many photos of wildlife along the route which have been taken over the past few years.
Believe it or not, even the worms are really important around here! The Red Route cuts through Grade 1 and Grade 2 agricultural land that is nationally rare and should be kept for growing food (especially in these times of BREXIT and climate change).
Do let us know if you can contribute your own local ecological knowledge, as it will become important to challenge generalisations the Council may make.
