Both Jean and Keith have been building links with animal protection and conservation charities in their constituencies.
Keith visited an RSPCA animal shelter in Sussex to meet with staff to hear about the rehoming and rehabilitation work the organisation does in the South East. He also spent time with one of the RSPCA’s Inspectors to observe the important rescue work that he carries out on a daily basis.
Jean recently visited ‘Wild Place Your Space’, a pioneering community garden which has been created near to London’s Olympic Park and is part funded by the RSPB. She discovered how the project is encouraging local residents, many from minority ethnic communities, who live without access to green, open spaces to discover the diverse wildlife that lives on their doorstep.
