The UK State of Nature Report 2019 is now available.
The report uses information from many data providers to identify overall change in abundance and distribution for a range of species. These sources include the UK Biodiversity Indicators, academic literature and measures specifically devised by the partnership.
Many of the UK surveillance schemes that provided data and evidence for the report are highly dependent on the huge contributions of skilled volunteers.
Marcus Yeo, JNCC’s Chief Executive, said: “We’re pleased to be able to work with the country nature conservation bodies and our NGO partners to provide best-available evidence that can be used by all to better understand how nature is changing across the UK. We recognise that the continuing declines in biodiversity require urgent action from across society. This report also highlights success stories from which we can learn, and which should be celebrated. Conservation is successful when we all work together.”
