I was pleased to attend the launch of the RSPB’s ‘Let Nature Sing’ campaign in Parliament this week.
The campaign aims to draw attention to the long-term decline in British wildlife, with 165 species currently critically endangered and 40 million fewer birds in the UK than there were 40 years ago.
To highlight the issue, the RSPB are releasing ‘Let Nature Sing’, a unique track of birdsong which the charity hope will make the UK charts.
It’s unthinkable to imagine a country without bird song. The RSPB do great work in championing British wildlife – including at the Newport Wetlands – and I was glad to be able to show my support for their campaign to keep the long-term future of British nature on the public agenda.
