Demand better protection for Welsh Nature
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
An important part of Brexit’s potential impact on the environment is the right of ordinary people to hold UK Governments to account. You can currently complain to the European Commission to ensure the government is effectively delivering environmental law. We will lose this right if we leave the EU, and there is currently no plan to fill the gap.
We want you to ask Welsh Government to ensure we retain this right, even if we leave the EU at the end of March 2019. We need urgent action to halt and reverse the devastating loss of Welsh nature.
Write to Lesley Griffiths AM, Minister for Environment, Energy and Rural Affairs, and help us fight for our incredible wildlife and unique landscape.
WELSH NATURE IS UNDER THREAT
From coastal dunes to peat moorlands, Wales has stunning natural landscapes. Our country is home to many wild plants and animals, from bottlenose dolphins in Cardigan Bay to the Snowdon lily in our mountains.
But Welsh nature is under threat. Many of our plants and wildlife are in decline.
Despite some positive signs - such as the recovery of the red kite – the overall picture is concerning.
One in 14 species in Wales is at risk of disappearing altogether and 60% of butterfly species have declined.
