The wilds of Britain?

Our landscapes are changing, it’s time to step outside and take action

When talk turns to UK wildlife, what springs to mind? Many people will think of forests filled with deer and badgers, hedgehogs peeping out of tall grasses, winding rivers brimming with barbel or salmon, heathlands dotted with wildflowers, and rolling green hills. Sadly, these landscapes and the flora and fauna they contain are becoming less a part of Britain’s reality, and more stories of old. Our horizons are becoming increasingly filled with areas of farmland, industry and human settlement, and as they spread, they take with them a myriad of habitats and native animals. Over the next few pages, we take a look at the current state of UK wildlife — paying close attention to the issues that threaten it and the organisations that are trying to protect it. You’ll also be able to read up on the benefits of being outside and how to reap them, as well as what you can do to help wildlife at home and in your local area.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to our jam-packed July issue. It’s always around this time of year that our staff get a bit thin on the ground, as we all head off on our summer holidays. We’ve had team members head to Ibiza, Madrid and Bali, armed with lists and recommendations, all seeking sun, sea and delicious vegan food. So to make sure you have your best summer yet, we’ve rounded up our top holiday suggestions (p42), got your sun care (p44) and snacks covered (p48) and Will Rankin has some brilliant travel hacks guaranteed to make your trip runs smoothly (p50). Closer to home, we have taken an in-depth look at the state of British wildlife (p106). I can remember, as a girl, walking through woods and seeing a huge array of animals — moles poking their heads out of mounds, timid rabbits darting back to their burrows and ponds lined with frogs. A walk through the countryside, sadly, can feel very different now — our wildlife is in serious and rapid decline with 11 per cent of our woodland species threatened with extinction. We uncover the issues affecting British nature and talk with those trying to save it. I’m also really excited to introduce our hilarious new columnist Claire Thrift (p58), who tells us about how her family are winning this BBQ season. Have a great month
