No let-up in the decline of our wildlife

The UK’s wildlife is continuing to decline, according to the State of Nature Report 2023.

Like most other countries worldwide, the UK has seen a significant loss of its plants, animals and fungi. The data from the State of Nature cover, at most, 50 years, but this follows centuries of habitat loss, development and persecution. As a result, the UK is now one of the most nature-depleted countries on Earth.

But the reasons for the decline are clear, and we know conservation actions deliver results for nature. We have never had a better understanding of the State of Nature and what is needed to fix it.
