The Wiltshire Wildlife Trust is set to participate in the Restore Nature Now march taking place in central London on June 22.

The event is predicted to signify the largest assembly of nature enthusiasts in history, with an impressive backing of more than 250 wildlife, climate, and conservation groups.

High-profile campaigners Chris Packham, Liz Bonnin, and Dr Amir Khan also lend their support.

This comes at a crucial time, with the UK experiencing record-breaking temperatures and 1 in 6 species at risk of disappearing altogether.

Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, along with local residents, is urging its upcoming MPs in Wiltshire and Swindon areas to make tackling these environmental issues a priority.

Their five key strategies include recovering Wiltshire's wildlife, advocating for wildlife-friendly farming, preserving Wiltshire's chalk streams, fostering thriving communities and addressing the escalating climate emergency.

The march is set to start at Park Lane, London, at 12pm, navigating through Piccadilly, Trafalgar Square and Whitehall, concluding at Parliament Square.

The event is slated to be peaceful, law-abiding and inclusive, featuring family-friendly performances, sculpture displays and communal singing.

Those from Wiltshire or Swindon interested in joining can contact for more details.

Joanna Lewis, CEO of Wiltshire Wildlife Trust, said: "We are calling on members of the public to join us in London on 22nd June and stand side-by-side to tell politicians they must take the nature and climate crises seriously.

"Actions taken by the next government will be crucial in delivering on national and international targets for nature and tackling climate change by 2030. It is internationally recognised that this is the critical decade for setting us on a nature-positive track for Net Zero."

Chris Packham, TV Broadcaster and Wildlife Campaigner, said: "As conservationists and environmental groups, we have to accept that the dire state of nature - both in the UK and globally - has happened on our watch. So now's the time for bolder action, stronger demands, braver tactics and a new way of working… together.

"Ticking a box, signing a petition, sharing a post - it’s simply not enough when we are facing the collapse of our living systems. It’s time for all of us to take to the streets, shoulder to shoulder, whoever we are and demand our leaders Restore Nature Now."
