Pledge for Nature

Make a pledge for nature

Are you a candidate in the December 2019 general election?

Nature doesn’t have a vote, so the Wildlife Trust is speaking up for all local wildlife and the local environment. We believe everyone deserves to live in a healthy, wildlife-rich natural world and everyone should have the opportunity to experience the joy of wildlife in their daily lives. Everyone needs a future where wildlife and people thrive, together.

This general election is a chance to turn around the climate and ecological emergency, and give our declining wildlife a helping hand. We need legislation that properly protects wildlife and the natural world.

We want you to give nature a voice by signing our pledge for nature.

The Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) is fighting for nature, and we’re calling on prospective MPs to take their local environment and nature seriously.

We are asking all candidates in the election to make a pledge to take action for nature.
