We were pleased to be invited to give evidence to the Hampshire 2050 Commission.
A Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust spokesperson said: "We ask the Commission to place nature’s recovery at the heart of a vision for Hampshire in 2050.
"The natural environment has the potential to be the county’s greatest asset – underpinning the health and prosperity of our local communities and of future generations.
"Simply maintaining the status quo is not enough and will lead to continued terminal declines in the health of the natural environment, loss of iconic and economically important places and species, and consequently damage to our health and well-being.
"A step-change in investments, attitudes and behaviours is needed across all sectors of society".
