Our very own Adam Cheeseman was recently part of BBC Radio 4’s Open Country visit to Heathrow Airport. The programme, hosted by Helen Mark, visits a number of the Biodiversity Sites including Twin Rivers and Princes Lakes. The programme looks at the Biodiversity management, which EHM has been heavily involved with, across the Heathrow estate and touches on potential impacts of a third Runway. Heathrow has thirteen sites of Conversation, and Helen speaks to the Airport's Biodiversity Manager Adam Cheeseman about the species he finds there including the Black Bee.
There is also a discussion with the Colne Valley Park and London Wildlife Trust on their views of the 3rd runway as well as a local farmer. It is an informative and interesting programme that is worth a listen if you are interested in how biodiversity can be managed by a large company and the impacts of large scale infrastructure projects and wildlife mitigation.
EHM Ltd has been involved with Heathrow Biodiversity management and their Biodiversity Benchmark Award for a number of years. If you would like more information on any of this please contact us.
