David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award – 2014/15
We’ve been awarded Gold in the prestigious David Bellamy Conservation Awards for the sixth year running.
Landal Gwel an Mor has achieved this accolade for their conservation work every year since 2009, described by Professor Bellamy as the ‘Green Olympics’ for holiday parks.
Parks wishing to enter for a Bellamy award must first complete a detailed questionnaire covering different aspects of their environmental policies, and describing what positive conservation steps they have taken. Next, the park must receive an independent endorsement from a local wildlife or conservation body which is familiar with the area.
The conservation audit of parks covers many environmental issues, ranging from aspects such as the care of hedgerows and wild flowers, to the siting of bird-boxes and the development and protection of reed beds and wildlife ponds. Professor Bellamy has also looked at aspects of park management which do not directly affect the immediate environment, but which are important in overall conservation terms, such as the use of unbleached paper for holiday brochures, installing long-life light bulbs and re-cycling waste.
