Importance of Nature

Importance of Nature

What is the project about?

Are you getting enough nature? It’s easy to think nature will always be with us. But even in my lifetime, birds like starlings and house sparrows have declined so much they’re now listed as endangered. In fact, nature is faring worse in the UK than in most other countries. The latest State of Nature report shows that over half our wild species – plants, insects, birds, mammals – are in decline. Read on to find out more about nature. But before you do, we've got a special ask. Doubling the amount of tree cover in the UK will massively help British wildlife. More trees will also help us tackle the climate emergency because they absorb the planet-warming pollutants, like carbon dioxide. Please sign our petition to double tree cover in the UK. Thank you.

Preserving the natural paradise together

Overlooking the importance of nature, as we go about our busy lives, makes it easier for it to disappear right in front of our eyes. It was great to see so many of you at Chris Packham's People’s Walk for Wildlife  on Saturday 22 September. It was an important event to help us bring attention to the plight of wildlife across the UK. To bring back nature, we need to show people what they're losing. This affinity tends to get knocked out of them as they grow. They come under pressure to put away childish things in favour of passing exams and getting a "proper job". Along with digital distractions and legitimate fears about playing outdoors, the pressures are removing children from nature before our very eyes. Who can blame them for thinking an apple is a gadget first and a fruit second? Yet for children and adults alike, daily contact with nature – being in green, open space, near healthy rivers, exploring nature’s colours, sounds, tones and textures — is linked to better health, less stress, better mood, reduced obesity. That’s already an amazing list of features no other product can ever match.


"Are you in nature deficit? First, how was your last holiday? Did you spend any time in nature? Shut your eyes and see if you can recall how you feel about the last time you spent time in nature. What about your normal busy day away from stunning views, beaches and sunsets? Does your daily routine give you any experiences of nature? Perhaps you don't have the time to notice the birds calling, the bees buzzing and to enjoy the colours of the changing seasons in a local park, even in your own street. If you’re not getting enough nature you're not alone.

 

And the work goes on
