England's lowlands deterioratingA report produced by English Nature entitled State Of Nature: Lowlands - Future Landscapes For Wildlife has called for improvements in the environmental standards of farming, better water management, and measures to reduce the impact of alien species.
Key recommendations include:
* Investment in environmental management + wildlife recovery on farms
Improved protection of the landscape will, however, benefit wildlife, the economy as well as people's health and their sense of wellbeing...
Dr Keith Duff, English Nature’s Chief Scientist said: "We don’t have some romantic notion about recreating the past, but believe we must move forward to sustainable land management in a modern context. We call on everyone to work with us to develop an integrated and landscape-scale approach across the whole of England to deliver benefits for all."
