Prioritise habitats and wildlife corridors over development

Prioritise habitats and wildlife corridors over development

Given that many species may need to travel large distances to undergo climate migration, making landscapes inhospitable for wildlife is sealing their fates. We must ban further losses of woodlands, hedgerows and other undeveloped semi natural habitats, particularly where landscape scale connectivity is at risk. There should be a strong presumption in favour of preserving wildlife habitats in all cases. Development needs to be scaled back and conducted more conscientiously to have a chance of softening the blow to biodiversity. The systems we have now simply arent good enough given we are one of the most nature depleted countries in the world. Long established, irreplaceable habitats, particularly ancient woodland, should not be damaged under any circumstances.
