Fortunately, there is a lot that we can do to reverse this decline.
If we add up all our garden and community spaces in the UK, it amounts to a higher quantity of land than all our nature reserves put together. We can create joined-up green corridors that provide our native flora and fauna with the resources they need to thrive. By caring for these areas in the right way, we can deliver food, shelter and habitats that bolster our wildlife population.
