Global policy

Biodiversity loss and climate change are the two greatest threats to nature and people. Our policy and advocacy work takes a global approach to solving them. Here’s how.

Protecting birds across the world

Many birds make epic migratory journeys across land and sea. To protect them we’re encouraging international cooperation along their flyways. This includes a particular focus on conserving networks of coastal wetlands for migratory waterbirds which are especially threatened.

Efforts in UK Overseas Territories

A quarter of the world’s penguins. A third of the world’s albatross. Ninety-four percent of unique British wildlife. The fifth largest marine estate on the planet. Every major habitat type on earth. All of this and more is to be found on the UK’s 14 Overseas Territories. These precious environmental assets are relied on by local communities who are on the frontline of the extinction and climate crises.
