Petition Protect and restore Britain’s lost rainforests

The UK Government should protect and restore Britain’s lost temperate rainforests by producing a ‘Great British Rainforests Strategy’. This must set out policies to better protect our remaining rainforests, and funds for farmers & landowners to restore them.

More details

Few people realise that Britain is home to temperate rainforest, a globally rare and important habitat. The rainforests are astonishingly beautiful, and they are wildlife- and carbon-rich habitats, home to many rare and unique species of lichens, mosses, fungi, birds, insects and mammals. Despite their significance, Britain’s rainforests only remain in fragmented pockets, but there is considerable potential for the Government to support the expansion of the habitat across Britain.
