Response for Nature 

In 2013, the State of Nature report found that 60 per cent of UK species studied had declined in recent decades, and more than 1 in 10 could disappear from our shores altogether. That left the question: 'what needs to be done to improve the fate of nature in the UK?'

These reports are our response. Many of the UK’s conservation organisations have joined forces to outline the key actions needed by the governments in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Download the reports below and see what the actions are for each country:
