The People’s Walk for Wildlife, 22 September

Conservative Animal Welfare Foundation joined the Peoples Walk For Wildlife on 22 September.

It rained heavily and there were many umbrellas, yet 10,000 people  turned up and walked through London listening to bird song playing from their mobile phones, led by Chris Packham.

The walk comes at a time when our environmental laws, funding and governance remain uncertain as the UK leaves the European Union.  The walk reminds all politicians to take the impact of wildlife into account in all decisions.. Billed as a celebration of life, it’s also a call for action to stop the decline of many species. Some species are already extinct while others, such  hedgehogs, bats and several species of moths have suffered  huge declines in the last few decades. Bees and butterflies are in decline as well as birds and insects. The causes of decline include the overuse of pesticides, the loss of hedgerows, hay meadows, deforestation , over tidy gardens and intensive farming.
