Nature is in serious decline. One in six species in Wales are at risk of extinction, meaning that when today’s young people are older, some of the most iconic species of the British countryside could already have been lost forever.
We want a Nature Positive, in Wales, and around the World. That means by 2030, we have more nature at the end of the decade than we started with.
Wales risks falling behind. The Welsh Government has dragged its feet and nature continues to suffer as a result.
To uphold its reputation as a world leader in tackling the nature and climate emergency, the Welsh Government must bring forward a Bill this year, in the 2023-24 legislative programme, that:
- Enshrines a commitment to a Nature Positive Wales in law, underpinned by legally binding nature recovery targets.
- Ensures environmental justice for the people of Wales by establishing an independent environmental governance body.
