We are in court today & tomorrow challenging the govt over their failure to carry out a proper consultation before selecting a preferred route for the Ox-Cam Expressway. We could not stand by while they put the environment and wildlife at risk.

Thanks for bringing to our attention. We encourage people to write to their local councillors and encourage them to raise road verge management up the political agenda. Simple changes to management practices can deliver huge benefits for wildlife.
