European wildlife on land and in the seas is under increasing pressure. By making sure vulnerable wildlife is supported, we give nature space to thrive. Networks of carefully protected areas in Europe have proven that declining wildlife can make a comeback when given the chance. We defend the laws to protect biodiversity, on land and in the seas.
