My other world

Philip, Astley Moss, Manchester
Philip has been helping to restore Manchester Mosslands for twenty years, helping these rare wetlands to recover. He works in front of a computer most of the time, so he has always enjoyed the exercise and fresh air, and now has the satisfaction of seeing his years of hard work pay off.

Volunteering in wild places gives you a chance to make a difference to Britain’s rarest landscapes.
