Along with other Wildlife Trusts across the country, NWT is asking: Do you want to see a better future for nature?
For the past 50 years, habitat loss has led to a drastic decline in nature. Wildlife populations are the lowest they have ever been, and once-common species could be lost forever. By helping nature’s recovery, we can halt the decline in nature, and create a wilder future. But current UK Government plans would mean less nature in England in 20 years’ time. This is not good enough. We cannot allow the nature crisis to continue. Demand more for nature.
Show the UK Government you want a wilder future by supporting our call for ambitious species abundance targets in the Environment Act by signing our petition.
To find out more, and to sign the petition, visit NWT’s webpage at https://www.nottinghamshirewildlife.org/nature-deserves-better
In a similar vein, Friends of the Earth are organising a separate, but similar, ‘Have your say on the Environment Act targets’ consultation, which can be found at https://action.friendsoftheearth.uk/target/env-bill-targets-consultation?refsid=2054&utm_source=email_share&utm_campaign=%5B2050%5D&utm_medium=share
Let’s make our voices heard!
South Notts Local Group needs you – the committee is looking to recruit one or two new committee members to join us in promoting wildlife, nature conservation and the work of Notts Wildlife Trust in the Rushcliffe area. We would be especially interested in hearing from anyone who has particular skills in social media and the like. The committee holds six meetings a year. If you would like to know more please contact Valerie Holt ( firstname.lastname@example.org ).
We need to act faster to protect our peatland . Support the #peatfree movement and stop peat being sold in shops and garden centres. Read more and sign the petition:
