Defining and delivering resilient ecological networks

Biodiversity is in trouble.

The State of Nature report showed us that 56% of species were declining, 40% showing strong to moderate declines, and a relatively high proportion of UK species were threatened with extinction.

Yet we know that well-planned conservation interventions work and our protected areas have played a massive role in helping to restore iconic species, like the large blue butterfly, bittern, lady’s slipper orchid, pool frog and sand lizard, and they could do much more in the future.
