Natural solutions to climate change

We are in the middle of a climate and nature emergency, and the two are inextricably linked. Climate change is driving nature’s decline, and the loss of wildlife and wild places leaves us ill-equipped to reduce carbon emissions and adapt to change.

By helping nature to recover, its potential to store carbon means it can help us to turn the tide on the climate catastrophe.

Reducing nitrates in the Solent

Decades of pollution entering the Solent from waste water, urban runoff and agricultural discharges have caused the levels of nutrient enrichment in our precious marine environment to reach crisis point. 

We can use the power of nature to clean up the Solent - the basis of the Wildlife Trust's new nitrates scheme.
