The State of Nature Report 201630/09/2016
The RSPB, in partnership with 50 conservation organisations, have pooled data to provide the most comprehensive assessment of the UK’s wildlife ever – and it’s not good news. More than 56 per cent of our wildlife has declined over the last 50 years and is still in decline. The new State of Nature report was launched by Sir David Attenborough – three years after the original report. On this episode of Nature’s Voice Jane Markham meets the RSPB’s Principal Conservation Scientist Dr Mark Eaton, lead author of the report, to look at its findings. And she speaks to Jim Foster from ARC, the Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Trust, and finds how, working in partnership, there is good news for some species.
