Call for nature's recovery by 2030
The Prime Minister has called on world leaders to turn around nature’s decline by 2030. But there’s no commitment in law to do the same here at home. The Environment Bill is the last chance to set this right. By writing the recovery of nature into law, the Environment Bill could start to address the nature and climate crisis. But the current wording fails to reflect the ambition or urgency we need.
We’re calling for a change to the Bill to strengthen the law. It would require the UK Government to set a legally binding target to reverse the loss of nature in England by 2030. The Wildlife Trusts are 1 of over 50 nature conservation groups that have joined together to urge the Prime Minister to make sure this crucial change gets through.
