A Voice for Nature
Wildlife is in trouble - globally animal populations are roughly half the size they were 40 years ago*, 56% of all UK species are in decline** and precious habitats such as wildflower meadows have been nearly wiped out, with only 3% remaining of those we had in the 1930s***
Evidence from the UK shows that while there have been some successes such as the recovery of otters, peregrine falcons and some bat species, there continues to be a dramatic decline in biodiversity, the quality of habitats, the population and status of many species and the overall 'health' of our natural environment.
Wildlife can't speak so we have to be its voice. Our volume is in the thousands of members and supporters who stand with us, each one giving us credibility and influence and ensuring we are heard by leaders and politicians at local and government levels, This is how we are able to campaign for environmental protections at a national level to checking local planning applications for the wildlife impact locally.
