UK Wild Life in Crisis

“It’s up to all of us to protect our wildlife and ensure we live in a world where all life can flourish.”
Chris Packham

Here in the UK we are facing an ecological crisis, the UK’s biodiversity is under threat. Ninety million birds have gone from our countryside since 1970 including 95 percent of turtle doves which are also at risk of becoming extinct globally.  Also corn buntings, grey partridge, tree sparrows, capercaillie and willow tit are among the species who have suffered “severe” declines since 1970. The UK has lost significantly more nature over the long term than the global average, we are among the most nature-depleted countries in the world.

If you care about our wildlife please watch the following video and take the suggested actions
