UK Near the Top of the Tree for Nature Depletion


It's not often that the UK achieves a high ranking for an assessed feature but we have come 189th out of 218 countries in terms of conserving our natural environment (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/gallery/2019/jan/31/the-uks-nature-in-crisis-in-pictures). So, in spite of our apparent enthusiasms for natural history programmes (mainly on the BBC), support of the occasional media frenzies on issues such as environmental plastics and the activities of our well-endowed conservation-related charities, we are world class at killing off the nature around us.
