PRIME MINISTER MUST DO MORE FOR NATURE, LEADING ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS WARN
The Government is failing to deliver nearly a third of its natural environment commitments, despite huge public support for action for nature, wildlife and the countryside.
The Government’s performance in protecting our environment has come under scrutiny in Nature Check 2013, a report published today by 41 environmental organisations, under the umbrella of Wildlife and Countryside Link.
Alongside the report, the organisations have published a ComRes survey of more than 2,000 adults, which has revealed the love people have for the British countryside. Notably, 83% of British adults believe the natural environment should be protected at all costs, while only a quarter think the Government is doing enough to protect our landscapes and wildlife.
