This presentation is given by Dr Patrick Harrison, Department of Biology & Marine Science, University of Hull at the Joined Up Heritage Sheffield bi-monthly meeting on 25th January 2022. The aim of the Ochre Dyke Wildlife Corridor is to link up and enhance sites of ecological interest forming a 2-mile-long wildlife corridor within the Beighton and Mosborough wards of South East Sheffield adjacent to communities suffering high deprivation. The corridor would be for the benefit of the local communities in these wards, but also the adjacent Birley ward. In taking such an interdisciplinary approach and linking ecology, community health and school attainment together, we believe we can have a positive impact on the lives of local people.
