Join us to declare a Nature Emergency for Rotherham and find out what you can do to help.

As well as a climate crisis, our wildlife is facing a critical emergency.

More than 1 in 10 of over 8,000 species assessed in the 2019 State of Nature Report are at risk of extinction – with 1 in 4 UK mammal species at threat of being lost.

The working group are meeting monthly to plan together how to raise awareness of the need for a nature recovery, and activities we can do to influence RMBC to take this into consideration. We are continuing our campaign of action, and we’re asking you – as individuals or organisations – to join us by signing up to Nature Recovery Rotherham.
