Wildlife needs space to survive and thrive.  The more of us who help create, protect, care for and save existing and new spaces, the better.   There are many good things going on to help wildife and ways to get involved, making it easy to make a positive difference to wildlife.   Every single action will make a difference. And if we all pull together, we can really power through change for the better.

The book "Earthshot" says that you and I can be part of the problem facing the planet - or we can be part of the solution.  Two things we can do is to protect the natural world and to reduce our impact.  "Urgency + Optimism = Action."
