“The landscape in the UK is shaped by farming. Yet not all change in recent times has been desirable: soils have been depleted, water courses degraded and nature has struggled to cope with the pace of change.
However, many farms are bucking this trend. Soils are being restored, nature is thriving and if more farmers followed this lead we can reverse these declines. With over 70% of the UK being farmland, we need to act now to deliver for wildlife at a landscape scale.
Nature friendly farmers believe that now is the moment for radical change in agricultural policy that rewards farmers for the conservation of natural resources alongside sustainable food production.”
