Wild LIVE: Tackling the twin threats of the nature and climate crisis
Each episode we’ll be joined by fantastic special guests to chat about some of the really important issues relating to wildlife, the natural world, and the environment – as well as answering any burning questions you might have.
The Wildlife Trusts are delighted to be bringing you a very special Wild LIVE during which Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, George Eustice, will deliver a major speech from Delamere Forest setting out how the Government is planning to tackle biodiversity loss and achieve Net Zero by 2050 through measures aimed at increasing England’s tree planting rates and restoring precious peatlands.
Chaired by Craig Bennett, The Wildlife Trusts’ Chief Executive, responses after the speech will be heard from Natural England chair, Tony Juniper and Forestry Commission chair, Sir William Worsley, with their own announcements – and a few words from Cheshire Wildlife Trust’s Chief Executive, Charlotte Harris.
The event will conclude with an opportunity for questions and answers.
