The David Bellamy Conservation Award champions holiday parks that are working to protect and enhance Britain’s environment and is one of the longest running green tourism awards in the UK. The parks that take part in the scheme are all regularly assessed by the scheme’s team of local wildlife experts.
The assessors look at the steps parks 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
David Bellamy uses the assessors’ reports (and any comments received from members of the public) to make his awards each year. Three levels of excellence can be achieved: Gold, Silver and Bronze.
