The award-winning Davies Veterinary Specialists (Davies) Green Group team are taking their sustainability commitment to the next level with some compelling local biodiversity projects, including a wildlife camera trap and bee-friendly planting, to the building of bug hotels and a community litter pick.

The Hertfordshire-based small animal referral practice, which is a part of the Linnaeus Group, is embracing biodiversity as part of on its ongoing sustainability journey in 2021.

“We have come up with some great biodiversity projects which we hope will captivate and inspire others both within the industry and within our local communities,” said Davies Green Group coordinator Rachel Evans. “Initiatives such as our wildlife camera trap, which has captured some superb footage of wild birds and mammals, are a great way to help spread the word about the many ways sustainability can be embraced.”

Biodiversity projects underway at Davies during 2021 include:

Davies achieved a first for the veterinary profession in 2020 by winning the Investors in the Environment (iiE) Sustainability Influencer Business of the Year. Davies’ green pioneer Ellie West was also recognised as Sustainability Influencer Individual of the Year 2020. Davies also holds Green level accreditation from Investors in iiE, which is the highest level awarded.

“Biodiversity is a natural next step on our sustainability journey,” said Rachel. “We hope our new projects will not only have a positive impact on our surrounding environment but will also inspire others within the profession to embark on similar schemes. By sharing ideas and working together as a profession we can make an even bigger impact on supporting our planet in sustainable ways.”
