Brexit and Wildlife

With the EU Referendum over, the challenges faced by the UK’s wildlife are as great as they have ever been. Wildlife is under real pressure from intensive land use and sometimes insensitive development on land and at sea. Our lives are becoming separated from the natural world. It is time to focus on the future of our natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife. To concentrate on what a healthy natural environment can do for us and what we must do for it.

Wildlife knows no boundaries and is faced with national and international declines. Following the EU referendum, we are calling on the UK government to set out its stall as a world leader on the environment by ensuring that special wildlife and wild places around the UK are protected for future generations.
