Early in September I attended one of the most exciting Wildlife Trusts’ conferences that I have been fortunate to be part of.
The conference title included the phrase ‘A Wilder Britain’ which hints at where we are all hoping to be in the future. BBOWT is working to rebuild nature, and a wilder Britain is part of what we want to reconstruct.
Since I returned from our gathering three very big issues have landed on my desk. I have covered the Agriculture Bill in my earlier blog. This piece of emerging government policy alone has huge implications for our work on our own land and for the farmers and landowners with whom we work.
