It's official. Nature is more under threat than ever before.
The places that nature calls home - where it raises a family and finds food - are being destroyed, exploited and polluted. As a nation we are losing our plant and animal species at unnatural speed.
Nowhere is this trend more clearly highlighted than in the groundbreaking State of Nature report - the first report of its kind to bring together the work of 25 conservation organisations and provide a healthcheck of our wildlife.
The report reveals that 1 in 10 of all the wild plants, insects and animals studied have decreased in number over recent decades. But it also highlights the good work being done to turn the fortunes of our wildlife around.
It's no exaggeration to say that without RSPB nature reserves, the declines of some species could have been much worse. For example, back in 1992 there were 19 'booming' male bitterns in the UK, But last year there were 121, with 39 per cent on RSPB reserves.
Together we'll give nature a home for generations to come.
