Our view on Brexit, the environment and nature.

People’s Trust for Endangered Species supports the views expressed by the The Wildlife Trusts and many eminent academics and specialists in this field that Brexit would be damaging for Britain’s environment and that our wildlife and habitats will be better off if they continue to benefit from EU environmental legislation and a cross-Europe framework.

There are many issues which will decide voting intentions at the forthcoming referendum, but on this issue which is so central to the British quality of life, the case is clear: We will be better able to protect the quality of Britain’s environment if we stay in Europe.
