You can help UK wildlife

Blue Tit

After Brexit, we need an environmental watchdog with teeth. Add your voice to the debate.

Nature is in a bad way in the UK but the government did promise to leave it in a better state.
Let's hold them to that promise with a world-leading environmental watchdog that has the powers to enforce targets set for wildlife to recover, and the ability to protect our precious wild places.

The Government is currently proposing an environmental watchdog without significant powers but they are consulting for your views. Let them know that you want strong laws properly enforced.
A watchdog that can scrutinise government and public bodies, a watchdog with ring-fenced funding to ensure operational independence from government.
