by Futures Centre, Oct 24
1 minute read

A pesticide tax, wildlife ponds at every industrial estate, an end to culling of seals and dredging for scallops, bird boxes at every new home, and replanting hedgerows are just some the demands put forth by People’s Manifesto for Wildlife. Launched by Chris Packham, best known for his work on the CBBC children’s nature series The Really Wild Show, the manifesto presents essays by 17 independent experts and scientists highlighting threats to UK landscape and biodiversity.  The essays are followed by “no-brainer” solutions which every person can undertake to abate the ecological degradation currently afoot in the UK. With businesses, governments, and NGO’s only able to act so fast, the manifesto provides a guide for individuals to take immediate action regarding a variety of ecological concerns ranging from a paucity of insects in the UK to environmental education in schools.
