Here at Carrington Park we have been associated with the David Bellamy Conservation Scheme since 2002. We now hold the highest Gold Award for how we manage the park and the surrounding areas.
The variety of work being done by these parks is phenomenal – from the creation of new wildlife meadows and woodlands to the construction of solar-powered shower blocks and energy-efficient lodges made out of recycled plastic, parks are active across the country.
The parks that take part in the scheme are all regularly assessed by the scheme’s team of local wildlife experts. The assessors look at the steps parks are taking to:
David Bellamy uses the assessors’ reports (and any comments received from members of the public) to make his awards each year. Three levels of excellence can be achieved: Gold, Silver and Bronze.
This year (2016/17), 587 holiday parks received a David Bellamy Conservation Award for the work they’ve done to the protect and enhance Britain’s natural environment.
