Happy World Wildlife Day everyone!

Information about World Wildlife Day here. And to celebrate, here's a seal from the Donna Nook sanctuary on the Lincolnshire coast.

Also, one of our office volunteers Emily did a rather marvelous blog post about World Wildlife Day on Campaign Hubs asking if our Government is doing enough to protect nature - go check it out!
During the recent UK floods, some politicians claimed more attention was being given to birds than humans. Such comments show there’s a long way to go to understand that looking after nature isn’t taking anything away from us humans.
The reverse is true. The more we treat nature as a luxury not an essential we imperil ourselves. Will people face more or fewer floods if we have fewer birds using wildlife reserves, cleverly also serving as flood barriers?
