David Bellamy Conservation Awards - Silver
The idea of the scheme was first sown when David Bellamy gave a talk to members of the camping, caravanning and holiday home park industry, in which he gave the audience members a challenge - to be part of the environmental solution and not part of the problem.
David was then invited to visit many parks and was amazed at the wide range of work that the most forward-thinking owners were doing for the environment.
David was so impressed that a partnership was formed between the Conservation Foundation (the environmental organisation that David co-founded to help businesses get involved in conservation) and the British Holiday & Home Parks Association to set up an award scheme.
The scheme proper started with a pilot programme in 1996 and the first awards were made in 1997.
The parks that take part in the scheme are all regularly assessed by the schemes team of local wildlife experts. The assessors look at the steps parks are taking to:
- Manage their land as a haven for wildlife
- Reduce their use of energy, water and other resources
- Reduce, reuse and recycle the waste they produce
- Support their local communities
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.
