Professor David Bellamy has named Flamingo Land Resort Yorkshire as one of the UK’s greenest places to take a holiday - and awarded it a special accolade for protecting the natural environment.
The David Bellamy Conservation Award celebrates parks with forward-thinking environmental policies. Gordon Gibb, Flamingo Land owner, said: “Conservation is my passion, so to be awarded this honour by a legend in the field, David Bellamy, is wonderful news.
“We work hard to make sure the park is run in an environmentally-friendly way, which enhances the experience for both visitors and staff.”
Mr Gibb and deputy executive Ross Snipp thanked Dr Sarah Spooner, education centre manager, for all her hard work in helping to secure the accolades.
The David Bellamy awards scheme has been running since 1997. All parks taking part in the scheme are regularly assessed to determine what steps they are taking to:
- Manage their land as a haven for wildlife
- Reduce their use of energy, water and other resources
- Reduce, reuse and recycle the waste they produce
- Support their local communities.
