Thames Estuary airport threat15/02/2012
Proposals to build an airport on the north Kent marshes are in the news once again. In this episode of Nature’s Voice the RSPB’s Rolf Williams, who is based at RSPB Northward Hill, talks to local people about what a new transport hub on the Thames Estuary would mean for them. The marshes are a wetland habitat that is recognised as being of international importance for wildlife and we hear the RSPB conservation director Martin Harper’s response in the light of previous threats to the area. There are also details about how you can make your voice heard about the plans.
