Wilder Future

Will you speak up for me?

I need your help

 

 

I need your help
My home is under threat and there are fewer places to find food every day. And I’m not alone: thousands of birds, insects and other animals across England are finding it harder and harder to survive. Plants and trees are under pressure too.

We need to convince Welsh Government of the need for a new law – a Countryside Act - to improve protection for our country’s wildlife. We need to make sure the law not only protects wildlife like me but helps us to recover, we need everyone on board. Assembley Members (AM) will be asked to pass a new law next year on the future of land managment in Wales. Althopugh we have some amazing environmental laws in Wales we are still loosing wildlife. So we need a new focus on creating a country with more wildlife because is better for me – and better for you too!

I don't have an AM - but you do.

Please arrange a meeting with them and help us talk to every AM in Wales this spring.

Yes, I'll speak to my AM

The campaign for a wilder future starts here....
Critically, we need a Countryside Act to give us a Nature Recovery Network.

Wildlife cannot survive for long in isolated pockets, and our wildlife sites are currently too small and disconnected from one another to prevent a disastrous decline in wildlife.

A Nature Recovery Network secured in law would map important places for wildlife, allowing us to create more space for nature and re-connect broken and isolated habitats together, providing vital links or 'wildlife corridors' for species such as hedgehogs and otters to survive and thrive.

If Wales committed to mapping nature's recovery, alongside setting ambitious legal targets to increase the abundance of our wildlife, it would have a world-leading, which would help us all be more connected to nature, healthier and happier.

How would a Countryside Act help wildlife in Wales?
Improve people’s access to nature, especially in towns and cities

Create new wild areas and wildlife corridors across the county

Keep our existing wildlife sites safe from harm

Protect our best wildlife habitats under the sea

Stop our soils washing away into rivers and the sea

Improve air quality, especially in towns and cities

Stop poisoning our rivers and streams with chemicals

Reduce emissions that are contributing to climate change

Protect people’s rights to a healthy natural environment

Avoid the loss of environmental protection laws after Brexit.
