I believe one of the most important things people can do is protect natural habitats and life within them: conservation.
Not just saving what little we have left but reversing the destruction the human population has caused to restore and rebuild habitats that have been lost. By protecting habitats, we protect the life within them for future generations and evolution on Earth.
Below are some charities to support that are making efforts to make this happen:
- Act for Wildlife
- Marine Conservation Society
- Scottish Wildcat Haven
- Wildlife Trusts
- Woodland Trust
I recommend being a member of the RHS to support the growth and spread of horticultural knowledge, and to visit Kew Gardens and Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh regularly to support their great scientific work. You’ll also be inspired and pick up some great tips from these!
