The 25 Year Environment Plan

This is the new plan from the government regarding the management of our environment. There has been quite a few discussions and comment in the media. Mixed reactions ~ all very well having a plan but it's the actions that are needed.

The complete report 151 pages long so it is quite a read but there is a more manageable summary available separately.

And the State of the UK's Bats report (good news!)

Some good news! Many of our bat species are holding their own and even increasing, surveys have shown.
