  • 81% of Britons believe nature is under threat and needs urgent action to protect it. We need a People's Plan For Nature, The Daily Alternative (Oct 11, 2022)

"unique collaboration with the UK public to protect and restore nature in the UK"

The National Trust, the RSPB and WWF are (September 2022) launching the People's Plan for Nature, inviting the nation to have its say on how the UK solves the ongoing nature crisis. Through both a UK-wide conversation and the UK's first ever citizens' assembly for nature, the charities are inviting people to share their ideas and together develop a set of public demands to tackle the nature crisis.

National nature reserves in England[edit | edit source]

National nature reserves in England are designated by Natural England as key places for wildlife and natural features in England. They were established to protect the most significant areas of habitat and of geological formations. NNRs are managed on behalf of the nation, many by Natural England itself, but also by non-governmental organisations, including the members of The Wildlife Trusts partnership, the National Trust, and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.

There are 229 NNRs in England covering 939 square kilometres (363 square miles). Often they contain rare species or nationally important species of plants, insects, butterflies, birds, mammals, etc.
