The State of Nature report, led by the RSPB and with over 50 partners, uses nearly 50 years of data to see how and why nature has changed. State of Nature is the most comprehensive nature report covering the UK, its Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories.
Working with leading professionals from over 50 research and conservation organisations, the report – following previous editions in 2013, 2016 and 2019 – uses the latest data from monitoring schemes and biological recording centres, collated by the work of thousands of skilled volunteers, to provide a benchmark for the status of our wildlife.
This new landmark study examines the trends and impacts on the UK’s wildlife and highlights where efforts at wildlife conservation have made a difference. Come to this online briefing to hear from four of the report’s authors.
