TV's Stephen Fry backs Wildlife Trusts 30 by 30 campaign drive

Solihull Editorial 2nd Dec, 2020   0

TV STAR Stephen Fry has released a short film lending his support for The Wildlife Trusts’ 30 by 30, a public appeal to raise £30 million to start putting nature into recovery across at least 30 per cent of land and sea by 2030.

The film asks people to ‘repay’ nature for all the support its given people in tough times.

In the film Stephen Fry says: “In my lifetime we’ve seen a catastrophic decline in our wildlife.

“Species are in danger of disappearing altogether.

“Something big needs to happen to change this.”

Funds raised by the appeal in Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull will go towards their nature recovery project which will put new land aside for nature as well as link-up existing wild areas to enable wildlife to roam.

In addition Warwickshire Wildlife Trust says it will change the way it acquires new nature reserves, giving highest priority to acquiring land with low existing wildlife because the potential to bring it back will be greater.

The Trust will also target land that is difficult to farm, and where the investment can have the biggest impact.
