Essex & Suffolk Water’s conservation and land manager Miranda Cooper, said: “The two new strands of funding should really help reverse declines in biodiversity loss and provide renewed effort to help tackle invasive non-native species across our region. This will all help build resilience which is essential for supporting a healthy natural environment.”
