State of Nature 2019 documents how human impacts are driving sweeping changes in wildlife in the UK. As well as an overarching assessment of UK flora and fauna, there are separate reports for England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales to look at each country in more depth. The reports pool data and expertise from 53 nature conservation and research organisations, a partnership unparalleled in UK conservation.
State of Nature 2019 presents an overview of how the country’s wildlife is faring, looking back over nearly 50 years of monitoring to see how nature has changed in the UK, its Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories.
As well as this long-term view, we focus on what has happened in the last decade, and so whether things are getting better or worse for nature.
In addition, we have assessed the pressures that are acting on nature, and the responses being made, collectively, to counter these pressures.
Population growth rates affected by climatic variables
Research by BTO and Natural England, suggests that climate change has had a detectable impact on a sizeable proportion of England’s avifauna over the last 50 years.
