Governor Lisa Phillips met, on Friday 16 September 2016, people that help to conserve the uniqueness of St Helena – the St Helena National Trust (SHNT).
During her visit Governor Lisa Phillips met staff from SHNT and saw some of the ongoing research. She also had the opportunity to plant a Gumwood at the Millennium Forest and heard how St Helena is home to many endemic species, including the Scarlet Pimpernel (the Mole Spider).
Governor Lisa Phillips commented:
“The St Helena National Trust do a great job of protecting the Island’s history and heritage. As progress happens, this is a really important role for future generations.”
Governor Lisa Phillips concluded by announcing that the St Helena National Trust (SHNT) and the Landscape & Ecology Mitigation Programme (LEMP) have been licenced to supply endemic plants for the District Clean-Up. Teams should make contact to take advantage of this generous offer.
