Environment & Community
There’s a heron that visits us. It sits quietly waiting for the fish to rise. Sometimes if we’re lucky, an otter or seal will play in the water around the quay. The Broads National Park is biodiverse and home to some of the UK’s rarest animals, birds and plants.
Around 230 nationally important invertebrates can be found around the Broads, including Britain’s largest butterfly, the Swallowtail. In the surrounding fenland grows protected plants like the fen orchid and crested buckler fern.
As users of these unique waterways we have a duty of care. That’s why we’ve renewed our commitment to reducing our impact on the environment. We’re reviewing every aspect of how we do business and have partnered with like-minded people and organisations like Natural England, to develop new initiatives for the benefit of its wildlife and people.
