I am not especially ‘political animal” – I really do not mind who is in Government, as long as they are pro-Nature and the Environment (yeah, right…) – but there are certain things that a government of an island nation such as the United Kingdom cannot do totally by and of itself, no matter how good the intention. If it were to become ‘independent’ – that is leave the European Union’  actually that would strip our current administration of huge benefits that we and nature take for granted – many of them ‘unseen’ , so not easily noticeable…

The European Union has a raft of areas – no less than 26 – where it supports the UK government to enable the environment protection and management

The Habitats Directive ensures the conservation of a wide range of rare, threatened or endemic animal and plant species. Some 200 rare and characteristic habitat types are also targeted for conservation in their own right.

Green Week is the biggest annual occasion to debate and discuss European environment policy. In 2106, it will focus on the theme “Investing for a greener future”.

Of the Natura 2000 Awards, the Commissioner stated I am once again honoured to be here tonight to recognise the fantastic work undertaken by the winners and all of the finalists in preserving our common natural heritage”

European Green Capital award aims to encourage and promote the lot of Green cities

Circular Economy website focuses on waste reduction

Europe’s protections keep Britain’s wildlife, countryside and nature safe. Wildlife doesn’t queue up at the border with its passport. We can only tackle these issues across borders. On 23 June, please vote remain – for nature.
