An Eastcote teen has launched a project promoting conservation across Greater London in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Kabir Kaul, 16, a conservationist and wildlife writer who is passionate about protecting London’s wildlife and green spaces, has teamed up with two organisations for a project titled 70 Nest Boxes for 70 Years.
Kabir launched this initiative with the support of the Cameron Bespolka Trust, a charity who organises events for young people to engage with nature, the Swift Conservation Organisation and C.J. Wildlife who are supplying the bird boxes.
Kabir said: “I hope that, in celebration of the Queen’s seventieth year on the throne, this initiative will help to introduce urban nature to children in London in a most simple way. Now, more than ever, we need younger generations to value the natural environment around them, especially in cities, where many more of us will be living in the near future.”
C.J Wildlife offer a wide variety of high-quality products for garden birds, squirrels, bats and insects. They work closely with the Cameron Bespolka Trust Young Ambassadors and support many of their projects.
The Swift Conservation Organisation were also very keen to help Kabir with his project. They are providing additional boxes for any school who has a suitable site for a Swift Box.
