Until Sunday 27th August 2017, the herd of sheep will be grazing in one of Green Park's wildflower meadows. Mission Invertebrate has teamed up with the Rare Breeds Survival Trust and Mudchute Farm to help maintain the grasslands and ensure that London's tiniest creatures thrive.

There will of course be a shepherd managing the sheep! The species who will be temporarily rehoused include Oxford Downs, Whitefaced Woodlands, Southdowns and Manx Loaghtan.
The woolly visitors will be in the park for a conservation trial for livestock grazing in wildlife conservation. The trial hopes to help maintain a variety of plant species and prevent coarse grasses dominating the meadow in Green Park. The end result? A greater variety of pollinators and other meadow-based invertebrates.
To see the newest residents of London, visit Green Park between Monday 21st and Sunday 27th August - you'd be 'baa-rking' mad to miss it!
