Public concern for nature reaches all-time high

Gov.uk website: More people than ever before are concerned about damage to nature, national statistics published on 3 September by Natural England show. In the world’s biggest scientific study of its kind, Natural England’s ‘Monitor of Engagement with the Natural Environment’ (MENE) report shows that nine out of ten adults in England are concerned about increasing threats to the natural environment, with nearly two-thirds specifically worried about biodiversity loss. This year, Natural England has created an interactive map allowing users to see the results for their specific area and better understand how their community uses its local natural environments. The raw data has been provided for each Local Authority to allow more advanced analysis. A short story map providing infographics of key things learnt over the decade of MENE is also available.Find out more > Read the press release >
