Nature’s closing down… 5 July 2021

Across the UK, nearly 38 million birds have been lost from our skies in the last 50 years. The collapse of the natural world threatens human life as we know it (via RSPB)

So, RSPB have opened ‘The InConvenience Store’ to tell the story of a world without nature, using seven products to illustrate how life as we know it could change within the decade unless our Government takes urgent action.

The store will be stocked with:

  • Sandbags because flooding is commonplace
  • Bottled air because the air we breathe is toxic
  • Expensive fruit and vegetables because there are no more pollinators
  • Recordings of birdsong because the dawn chorus has disappeared

But it’s not too late, there’s still time to help make a difference.

What can you do?

From July 1 – 8, RSPB are asking everyone to visit the online experience and add their name to a real shopping basket of survival products that will be sent to political leaders in Northern Ireland and across the UK.

RSPB need thousands of names to fill the baskets to show leaders why they urgently need to put nature first and set bold targets for nature’s recovery at all levels of government.

Add your name today and protect the future of our planet.
