#GiveNatureABreak offer

Bees, butterflies and red squirrels in the UK’s National Parks are set to benefit from Forest Holidays’ #givenatureabreak campaign that starts on November 8th with a target to raise £50,000.

Forest Holidays and the National Parks have launched the #GiveNatureABreak campaign as a way to support threatened bees, butterflies and red squirrels. From 8th November until December 2nd, £20 from every Forest Holidays booking will support these endangered species in the National Parks. Using the code ‘NATURE’customers will also receive a 20% discount on their booking not just on ‘Black Friday’ but for the whole campaign.

The State of Nature Report 2019 has shown that UK biodiversity is under unprecedented threat. The UK's National Parks are aiming to turn the tide on biodiversity loss on a big and small scale, through larger landscape projects and smaller initiatives for a wide range of individual species including bees, butterflies and red squirrels.

Projects to benefit include ‘SaveReds’ in the Lake District National Park, working to protect endangered red squirrels; the ‘Dartmoor 2020 Butterfly Project’; ‘Beelines’ in the South Downs National Park; ‘Make More Meadows’ in the Pembrokeshire Coast and the North York Moors 'Rare Butterflies Project’.

Forest Holidays already support the UK’s National Parks through ‘National Park Futures’ a project that launched in May 2019 and is connecting 20,000 young people with nature over the next five years.
