BORIS JOHNSON must set legally binding targets to reverse the loss of nature in England by 2030, a group of 50 conservation groups demanded today.
The PM has pledged to protect 30 per cent of land and sea for nature by 2030, but campaigners have raised concerns that the government is under no legal obligation to meet these targets.
Britain has lost half of its wildlife in the past 50 years and one in seven species are now at risk of extinction.
The letter, signed by the RSPB, the Wildlife Trusts and nature campaigner Chris Packham, is calling for the PM to enshrine targets for nature recovery in the new Environmental Bill.
The Bill “falls short of its potential to set world-leading nature targets” the groups say in the letter.
RSPB chief executive Beccy Speight said: “Nature in the UK is in freefall. We are losing species and the habitat they need every year. Actions not just words are now required.”
