Today is World Wildlife Day and Salford has been celebrating. This year’s theme is ‘Sustaining all Life on Earth’.
The website for World Wildlife Day says that, “On World Wildlife Day 2020, we will celebrate the special place of wild plants and animals in their many varied and beautiful forms as a component of the world’s biological diversity.
“We will work to raise awareness of the multitude of benefits of wildlife to people, particularly to those communities who live in closest proximity to it, and we will discuss the threats they are facing.”

Clifton Country Park is a great place to visit if you want to spot some wildlife.
The park in Salford has woods, meadows, ponds and a lake in which you can explore, meaning it is a great day out for all of the family.
In addition, it always has a range of events that you can take part in such as, guided trails and different activities.
