NATUURPUNT

Date of publishing: 16 March 2017
Type of organisation: National NGO
Type of twinning: Thematic twinning
Country: Belgium
Description of the twinning need: Natuurpunt as an organisation strongly relying on the work of volunteers, is interested in the exchange of experience with similar organisations from other countries in approaches to attracting and motivating volunteers. More specifically, Natuurpunt is interested in setting up cost-covering voluntary schemes such as the Finnish “Herder Weeks” concept on grassland management and meat production, where volunteers herd the flock, and cover the participation costs themselves.

NATURAL ENGLAND

Date of publishing: 16 March 2017
Type of organisation: Governmental organisation
Type of twinning: Site twinning
Country: UK
Description of the twinning need: Natural England is interested in twinning their two peat sites Holme Fen and Woodwalton Fen with similar sites in North-Eastern Europe. Woodwalton is regarded as a fen site, and represents some of the last fragments of undrained fen in the UK. Holme was a raised bog but as the land around has dried out, the site struggles to hold water and now has a substantial birch woodland over much of the site which has its own value. Another interesting aspect would be to twin with sites that support similar species. Both Holm and Woodwalton have very rare plants in the UK, these being the fen violet (Viola persicifolia) at Woodwalton Fen and fen woodrush (Luzula pallidula) at Holme Fen.
