Froglife is fundraising to restore and create standing water habitats (ponds) at Cowdenbeath Grasslands. Cowdenbeath Grassland is a large, predominantly grassland site with numerous over-grown ponds and pools, these will be restored to provide vital, open water for amphibians, reptiles, aquatic invertebrates, wading birds, aquatic plants and small mammals such as water voles, bats and hedgehogs.
Our ambition is to restore four non-functioning ponds and two scrapes and to create thirty new ponds and sixteen scrapes. Additionally, we will create basking banks, plant a range of native scrub/tree species and hawthorn planting to improve connectivity and provide sheltering habitat.
This project forms part of Froglife’s Living Water programme that operates across the UK creating and restoring amphibian and reptile habitats. In order to secure the grant we need to show that we have support for our Living Water programme. Please support us through our social media feeds or by emailing Info@froglife.org.
