"Science is catching up to what nature lovers already know – that time in nature plays an essential role in physical and mental wellbeing. Access to nature-rich places is also crucial to conservation – we will not fight to save what we do not love, and we cannot love what we do not know. This dual role of protection and connection are why the Wildlife Trusts will always have my support. Their reserves are not only places of wildlife preservation and nature restoration, but gateways to a sense of ecological belonging."
