Marching to Restore Nature

Campaigns, Climate Crisis, Communities

Marching to restore nature is the focus of environmental campaigners “biggest march” to save the natural world and protest for urgent political action to “restore nature now.” Extinction Rebellion (XR), The Wildlife Trusts, WWF, UK Youth for Nature, the Woodland Trust and more will unite on the streets of central London from 12 noon on Saturday 22 June.

XR spokesman and Olympic gold medal-winning canoeist Etienne Stott said: “biodiversity loss, habitat destruction and climate breakdown are now at breaking point. I’m deeply worried and I know huge numbers of others are too. The only way we are going to do anything about it is if we all come together and pull in the same direction.”

Marching to restore nature is a demonstration following on from the 2023 “Big One” protest. It aims to bring “this fight to the mainstream and get everyone who cares about our planet and all life on earth to bring about radical and urgent change” Mr Stott said.

Among the protest’s calls are ‘a pay rise for nature’ by supporting farmers, and making big business polluters pay — including in the water, retail and energy industries.
