The first Environment Bill in over 20 years is making its way through Parliament and will soon be debated by MPs.
This is our chance to address the nature and climate emergency in law – helping us to reverse the massive loss of nature and tackle climate change. But we think the Bill can do more to ensure government acts to help nature.
We’re calling for a clear, legally binding target in the Bill to reverse the decline of species and habitats within a decade. By being the first country to set an ambitious target in law for the recovery of nature, we hope the UK will set an example which the rest of the world can follow.
Sir David Attenborough, President Emeritus of The Wildlife Trusts says:
“We are facing a global extinction crisis which has implications for every one of us. It’s tempting to assume that the loss of wildlife and wild places is a problem that’s happening on the other side of the world.”
