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.

How we did it

Contributions from hundreds of conservationists were analysed. 

We looked at current conservation actions - everything from schemes to help farmers manage their land for nature, to engaging children with nature at school. What needs to be improved? What new things does nature need us to be doing?

We identified a range of actions necessary to save nature. While there are some common themes, there are also specific priorities for each UK country. The actions are in four reports.

What's next? 

In the next phase of this project we will be working with businesses to develop a Business Response for Nature.

Partners

Across the four UK countries, 34 different conservation organisations contributed to the Response for Nature project.
