Where are Norfolk’s wildlife heroes?
The search is on for wildlife heroes working to make a difference for nature and people in local communities. The Community Biodiversity Awards are organised annually by the Norfolk Biodiversity Partnership (NBP), a well-established partnership working to co-ordinate and share initiatives to conserve biodiversity across Norfolk.
