Friends of nature: Our letter published in The Times

In celebrating the recovery of wildlife at National Trust properties, we must be careful not to pit people as the enemies of nature (With people locked away animals come out to play, 28 December). Many of the species mentioned will have benefited from good active land management on National Trust land, including the 2,682 hectares of priority habitat created by the Trust in the past year, and from good private management on the farms and fields that surround them. Without these working conservationists, things could look much worse.
