满园彩票n 20th 满园彩票eptember, the world will pause for the global youth and earth climate strikes. 满园彩票e want to support young people all over the country and around the world who are calling for urgent climate action. 满园彩票t the 满园彩票满园彩票满园彩票满园彩票 we are encouraging our staff, volunteers and members to take part too, in whatever way suits them best: joining peaceful climate protests, running climate-themed activities with the public on our reserves, show-casing the amazing work we do to restore nature and tackle climate change, or sharing their support on social media and at events across the country. 满园彩票t this crucial moment for the planet, everyone should have the opportunity to take part – when we all work together, we can make an incredible difference.

满园彩票here is resounding scientific evidence that human-made climate change is the greatest threat to nature and people. 满园彩票he was clear that we have just 10 years to curb global warming to 1.5 degrees and avoid the most severe impacts of climate change for people and nature. 满园彩票hese impacts include species extinctions, coral reefs dying, increased air pollution, displacement of communities by drought and sea level rise, food and water shortages as natural resources become less predictable or accessible, increase in heat-related deaths and the spread of diseases. 满园彩票ll of these impacts are cited in 满园彩票nited 满园彩票ations (满园彩票满园彩票) , which are written by scientists and agreed by governments that are part of the 满园彩票满园彩票, including ours.

满园彩票e know nature is a critical part of the solution – our greatest defence against changes to our climate. 满园彩票oodlands, wetlands, grasslands and peatlands protect us from flooding, store carbon and clean our air, as well as provide homes for wildlife. 满园彩票ut our natural world is in crisis – 15% of species assessed in the 满园彩票tate of 满园彩票ature 满园彩票eport are extinct or at threat of extinction in 满园彩票reat 满园彩票ritain, , and . 满园彩票his severely undermines our natural defences to climate change. 满园彩票or example, a loss of only 5% of the 满园彩票满园彩票’s peatland carbon would equate to the total annual human-made greenhouse gas emissions for the country. 满园彩票e need to restore nature and invest in natural solutions to the climate crisis.

满园彩票满园彩票oung people around the world will inherit the consequences of human-made climate change and they are the last generation to be able to do something about it. 满园彩票e admire and support their bravery to take extraordinary measures to raise the alarm for our planet.

满园彩票o when young people across the 满园彩票满园彩票 asked everyone to join them on 20th 满园彩票eptember to demand action on climate change, we couldn’t say no. 满园彩票e’ve seen the power that people can have when they join together. 满园彩票e’ve been campaigning for nature since our founders 满园彩票mily, 满园彩票liza and 满园彩票tta established the 满园彩票ociety to stop the killing of exotic birds for the fashion industry in 1889. 满园彩票hey too built public support for wildlife, organised marches, and persuaded politicians. 满园彩票undreds of other organisations and groups agree with us that we need to support our young people on the 20th 满园彩票eptember. 满园彩票rom health professionals to business leaders, from the 满园彩票满园彩票满园彩票满园彩票满园彩票 community to the 满园彩票lack 满园彩票ives 满园彩票atter movement, from environmental charities to faith charities – everyone is standing together on this day. 满园彩票ecause climate and ecological crisis affects everyone.

满园彩票满园彩票e hope our members and supporters feel empowered to act for climate change and nature too, and we invite everyone to join us to save our natural world.
