It’s question time

Forget BBC One’s Question Time! Northumberland Wildlife Trust is inviting members of the public to tell them if, or why, they care about nature in its online Wildlife Interests survey; the results will feed into a nation-wide study by the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts.

The aim of the survey is to increase the Royal Society’s understanding of the topics that interest its supporters and people throughout the UK and also to test how certain values and ideas influence their likelihood to engage with nature. The results will help formulate its marketing and campaigning for 2018/2019.

At a time when nature is facing so many challenges with funding cuts to wildlife organisations working to protect nature, threats to green spaces from developers and the uncertainty of Brexit, the Trust would really appreciate it if the public got behind the survey and completed it.

The short survey runs until midnight on Sunday 3 December and can be accessed at http://wtru.st/2hAe4Qy
