We can deliver landscape recovery, but it needs people: our letter to The Times


The government’s ambitious plans for landscape recovery (Rare wildlife promised new lease of life, 6 Jan) are to be welcomed, but we mustn’t forget the role of people in this. If we are to deliver recovery of species such as the Eurasian curlew, we need a managed landscape providing habitat, food availability and reduced pressure from predators. This distinction between a wild and a well-managed landscape doesn’t just deliver for wildlife, it provides jobs and a productive countryside as well.

Kind regards,
