It's time to let nature lead

The next general election will be held on 4 July.

It’s time to let nature lead.

We need the next UK Government to Think Big and Act Wild for nature, people and planet. 

The UK is one of the most nature-depleted countries in the world with just half (53%) of its biodiversity remaining, a figure that places us in the bottom 10% of the world's countries for the state of our nature. We need our next government to make radical changes to reverse this decline and commit to nature recovery, by dedicating 30% of land and seas to rewilding by 2030.

The Rewilding Manifesto has five key calls to action to create positive and inclusive change on land and at sea:

  1. Rapidly deliver 30% rewilding by 2030
  2. Expand nature-based jobs and businesses
  3. Make wild nature a right for all
  4. Empower communities to lead rewilding
  5. Create a game-changing shift in rewilding funding and investment

By working with nature rather than against it, rewilding offers hope and the opportunity to give nature (and us) a chance. It can help us transition to a nature rich, low carbon future while delivering real, locally generated benefits today. These benefits include carbon storage, climate resilience, thriving biodiversity, vibrant green economies, local livelihoods, flood mitigation, healthier air, water and soils, and improved health and wellbeing.

We estimate around 1% of Britain is currently rewilding and we need each political party to incorporate rewilding 30% of land and seas into their election promises. We've done the hard work for political leaders and created the Rewilding Manifesto to enable our future government to act swiftly and decisively to protect, restore and rewild nature in Britain.

Help us get the next government to commit to our manifesto and rewild 30% of our land and seas by 2030.
