The Wildlife Trusts £30m appeal for 30% of land and sea: A public appeal has been launched by The Wildlife Trusts to raise £30 million for the recovery by 2030 of at least 30% of land and sea.
The initiative called ’30 by 30′ aims to enable wildlife to move around by buying land to expand national nature reserves and support nature recovery projects that will repair existing wild areas.
The projects will benefit a range of areas, such as species reintroduction and land acquisition to peatland repair.
Nearly 26% of UK mammals are in danger of disappearing altogether according to figures and almost 10% of the protected land in the UK is in poor condition.
Chief Executive of The Wildlife Trusts, Craig Bennett said: “The next ten years must be a time of renewal, of rewilding our lives, of green recovery.
“We all need nature more than ever and when we succeed in reaching 30 by 30 we’ll have wilder landscapes that store carbon and provide on-your-doorstep nature for people too.”
