News from the Natural World: UK Gov to allow rare birds to go on rides at Themepark built on Swanscombe Marshes.
News from the Natural World: UK Gov is to allow rare birds to go on rides at a Themepark built on Swanscombe Marshes. The Swanscombe Marshes is a beautiful mix of local nature reserves, marshes and pasture in England, UK. In addition, it is currently home to 1,992 species of invertebrates including 250 of conservation concern. The peninsula is also home to incredibly rare species such as the distinguished jumping spider. This tiny leaping critter is a critically endangered arachnid only found in one other location in Britain. The marshes have long been a haven for wildlife in the UK, a rare unspoilt wilderness free from the rampant destruction of humans. However, that is all about to change as the Marshes stand on the precipice of a potentially fatal new threat. The Swanscombe Peninsula has been earmarked for a new theme park called the London Resort. The London Resort will be feature rides inspired by shows from BBC Studios, ITV Studios and Paramount Pictures. Also, it will have a myriad of hotels, restaurants and a conference centre. The UK Gov also said that a rollercoaster was judged to be “nationally significant infrastructure”. But the ambitious £3.5bn plans for the biggest theme park in Britain besides the Thames threaten what many conservationists have said is the best site in the country for rare invertebrates. But never fear, the UK Government said that the animals of the Swanscombe Peninsula had nothing to worry about, the government had a plan.
