Campaign for a Wilder Future


A Wilder Future

A wilder Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside 

Helena Dolby for Sheffield & Rotherham Wildlife Trust

66 % decline in barn owls since the 1930s
95 % decline in basking sharks in UK waters
90 % decline in common frogs since the 1980s
2 % of Lancashire's mosslands now remain

Right now, Government officials are deciding the contents of the proposed Environment Bill. We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to put wildlife at the heart of politics and kickstart nature's recovery, and we need your help.

Wildlife across the UK is facing mass decline. The systems and laws that should be keeping nature healthy are failing – both for wildlife and for people. As a result, everything is becoming disconnected.

Turtle doves and nightjars no longer live in the North West and the Manchester Argus butterfly can no longer be found in the city. Our magnificent mosslands have been destroyed through peat extraction and the willow tit only survives in small patches of landscape.

We need to put nature into recovery. Let's make a noise for nature that the Government can’t ignore.

Wildlife legislation is currently limited to trying to protect certain places or species.  It was never designed to put nature into recovery, and it can’t. We need our current laws to stay strong, but we need new laws if we are to put nature into recovery and help it to thrive.
