Expert Team: Conservationists

Client(s): Woodland Trust

To help the Woodland Trust provide evidence to save the woodland to help protect the woodland and the animals and plants that live there.


We overhear a local resident gossiping with an adult in role. Oh no, the local wood is going to be chopped down to build houses. She is so worried about the plants and animals. Also the wood has been there for generations to enjoy. Local schools use the wood for pond dipping and it is opposite an old peoples home. This is going to effect the local community as well as the plants and animals.
