“Richmond Park is not just a local park it's London's own National Nature Reserve with thousands of species of flora and fauna, but with 5.5 million visitors each year, the Park is under immense pressure. However, as visitors we can all help to protect it through simple actions so that it will remain a wonderful place for the enjoyment of future generations” (Sir David Attenborough).
