An Abbey Wood nature reserve is going to benefit from a new partnership to boost conservation on the Thames.

London Wildlife Trust has joined forces with Thames Water which aims to recognise wildlife havens along the river. This will see the organisations working closer together to make best use of sites like the Crossness Nature Reserve in Belvedere Road.

Helen Newman of Thames Water said: “Protecting wildlife is very important to us and we are delighted to form this alliance.

“Our aim is to inspire and engage local people.”

Carlo Laurenzi, London Wildlife Trust chief executive, added: “This partnership will be for the long-term benefit of people and wildlife in areas such as Abbey Wood.”

The organisations hope to inspire schoolchildren and the wider community to embrace the Abbey Wood site while teaching the importance of conservation issues.
