Autumn Events

1. Happy Autumn Equinox:- 02:54 on Sun 23 Sept!

4. London is a long way to go for Chris Packham’s Walk for Wildlife
– Sat 22 Sept – but please read the manifesto here:-
http://www.chrispackham.co.uk/a-peoples-manifesto-for-wildlife . Two quotes:
   “Between 1970 and 2013, 56 of UK species declined . . . of the nearly
   8,000 species assessed using modern criteria, 15 are threatened with
   extinction. . . . this suggests that we are among the most nature-depleted
   countries in the world   .”

  “Of the 218 countries assessed for ‘biodiversity intactness’, the UK is
   ranked 189,  a consequence of centuries of industrialisation,
   urbanisation and overexploitation of our natural resources”.

                   YOUR WILDLIFE NEEDS YOU!
