Protecting the laws that protect nature – why the Nature Directives matter

EU legislation – the Birds and Habitats Directives – which protect the most important wildlife species and habitats in the UK and Europe are being reviewed and at risk of being weakened. On this month’s nature’s voice, Jane Markham visits the RSPB’s heathland reserve at Arne in Dorset, one of the world’s rarest habitats, and a place which is protected thanks to the Birds and Habitats Directives. She also speaks to Alistair Taylor, the RSPB’s Senior Policy Officer for Nature Directives, and looks at the Defend Nature campaign, which is how you can help protect the laws which protect nature.
