Our natural world is in a critical condition. Whilst we have secured some laws for protection in the UK and the EU, these are rarely well enforced and do not provide for nature’s recovery. The recent protests by Extinction Rebellion highlight the urgency of the situation. People across the country are standing up for nature’s recovery and a Wilder Future, calling on Government to take urgent action before it’s too late.
We are seeing signs that parliament is listening, with the passing of a motion yesterday to declare a Climate and Environment Emergency. But it is not enough, we now need to see action.
