The Rivers Trust release three new animations to visually explain the basic concept of natural capital and ecosystem services
Three new animations, funded by the Interreg North Sea Region WaterCoG project, have been created by The Rivers Trust to visually introduce natural capital and ecosystem services in three films. The first introduces the subjects, the second provides context for soil and land management, and the third film has been created to provide context for investment decisions.
Barry Bendall, Director Water and Land at The Rivers Trust, said: “I hope these animations generate a more shared understanding of the terms ‘Natural Capital’ and ‘Ecosystem Services’ and how they can be applied to real-world examples. In particular, they help bridge the gap between policy language and practical understanding for those that perhaps have the greatest opportunity to protect and conserve our shared natural resources”.
