As our climate warms, both people and the wildlife we love will be affected. More extreme weather will cause droughts, wildfires, flooding and irreversible changes to nature. One in ten UK species is already at risk of extinction and over half of UK wildlife is in decline. If we do not solve the nature and climate emergency together, some of the wildlife we see today could be lost for good if we don’t act.
But it’s not all bad news. Many of our natural habitats like peatlands, native forests and oceans hold the answer to locking in carbon and reducing emissions to help keep global warming below 1.5°C. In turn, the recovery of these natural habitats means that wonderful species can thrive again.
The RSPB, with your support, is working hard to make a difference. We have the knowledge and understand the solutions. Now we need the UK’s leaders to commit to targets in law that will revive our world.
