It is so important to take care of yourselves and others in this heatwave. Whilst this is what is to be expected with current climate change, all we can do is to continue pressuring the government and large businesses to become greener, and quickly.
For the wildlife in our communities, they just survive. Make sure to leave food, plenty of food and water and access to shade. Don’t cut your lawn, the longer length provides shelter for insects and pollinators. It is better for your garden in the long run too.
Look at the poster from The Wildlife Trusts above which has further details and advice.
