NATURE IS IN TROUBLE.
Join us to declare a Nature Emergency for Sheffield and find out what you can do to help.
More than 1 in 10 of over 8,000 species assessed in the 2019 State of Nature Report are at risk of extinction – with 1 in 4 UK mammal species at threat of being lost.
We’ve seen an incredible response so far, with over 1,200 people and 34 organisations signed up, public support from the Leaders of Sheffield’s Green Party, Liberal Democrat and Labour groups and Olivia Blake MP. Most excitingly, on 16th June a motion on the nature emergency was carried by Sheffield City Council, including commitments to declare a nature emergency and to deliver a Nature Emergency Action Plan!
But we are continuing our campaign of action, and we’re asking you – as individuals or organisations – to join us by declaring a Nature Emergency for Sheffield.
It is vital we tackle both the climate and ecological crises together, and ensure solutions to the climate crisis are good solutions for nature too.
Please sign up to our declaration. Nature Recovery Sheffield is asking everybody to simply state ‘I or We declare a Nature Emergency for Sheffield’. This could be on social media, in the windows of homes and shops, on company websites and marketing emails.
