Access to nature survey

We know that nature is good for human wellbeing. But should access to the countryside be expanded in England? And if so, how can we do it in a way that meets the needs of landowners and wildlife? We are looking for as many opinions as possible on this important topic.

In April, the BES English Policy Group held a debate with 45 ecologists, practitioners and policy makers to discuss how we can balance wildlife conservation with public access to nature. Now we need opinions from members of the public and landowners/managers to inform our recommendations.

Please help us by taking the access to nature survey and sharing it with family, friends, or contacts who are landowners or work for landowning organisations.
