The State of Nature report tells us that many kinds of mammal, bird, insect and plant in Britain are in serious decline. In these times of changing climate, with tough economic choices being made, species face extinction. Ella Davies at the BBC tells us which organisms are subjects of concern. I’m grateful to my fellow blogger narhvalur for drawing attention to this.
But for many species it’s not too late. The State of Nature report’s authors say, ‘With sufficient determination, resources and public support, we can, and will, turn the fortunes of our wildlife around.’ [Edit] In fact, the same day the State of Nature report came out, so did another report showing more encouraging news. You can find that by following a pingback at the end of this blog post.
