Petitions, petitions

We sign them, but perhaps do not start many.


But with the support of a handful of friends, I simply want to offer the chance for people to ask the RSPB and Wildlife Trusts whether they would consider dropping Natural Capital and Payments for Ecosystem Services from the Nature and Wellbeing Act Green Paper. I admire both organisations for their dedication to conservation science and education, but think this move to value nature by the £ in a pro-growth economy is a mistake. I know others feel the same. I do hope the organisations will reconsider.

If you want to sign, please do so here…

To RSPB & Wildlife Trusts. Please drop NatCap & PES from Nature & Wellbeing Act Green Paper

    I agree with you, and signed the petition. I think natural capital can seem like a good idea, but it can have disastrous consequences.

    Yes, the consequences may be far more unpredictable than we are being led to believe. A high risk strategy. Thank you so much, Juliet. Your support is much appreciated!
