Episode 27: The Ponds

Episode 27 of the Knepp Wildland Podcast finds us in the field with Rosie Moss from the wonderful Newt Conservation Partnership and Shaun Hancox, digger-driver extraordinaire! The Partnership have been harnessing funds from developers through the NatureSpace District Licensing Scheme to create high quality habitat for Great Crested Newt, and a whole host of other wetland species. We’re delighted to have recently had 12 impressive new ponds dug at Knepp through this scheme.

Tune in to hear about the new ponds at Knepp and the importance of ponds in our landscape, and to find out more about this crucial drive for the creation of more ponds. Large or small, and in their varying degrees of succession, ponds provide an essential habitat for both wildlife to thrive in and for us to enjoy!

Our 12+ Policy

Knepp Wildland Safaris and campsite are all about the quiet and patient observation of nature.

Some of the species we are likely to encounter are shy or can be frightened by loud noises or sudden movements. Our campsite with open-air fire-pits, wood-burning stoves and an on-site pond is unsuitable for small children.

For this reason, our safaris, holiday cottages and campsite are suitable only for children of 12 and over.
