Protecting and restoring nature in the European Union is incredibly important, but how do we stop declines in biodiversity? With the European Commission’s publication of a mid-term report on the Biodiversity Strategy to 2020 last week came confirmation that the situation remains hugely concerning.
As millions of Europeans go to the beach (or dream about it) the seas are dying. Only 5,9% is protected and the Mediterranean is almost entirely overfished. This is not the time for less protection, it’s time for #naturealert
Birds shot from August to May, wolves and goshawks considered vermin and exterminated without a second thought. Insects, frogs and turtles ignored. Just 5% of Europe’s landscape protected… welcome to Europe. Before the Nature Directives.
