Wild Ken Hill in Snettisham, have joined the Zero Hour campaign in support of the Climate and Ecological Emergency (CEE) Bill.

It is a cross-party bill being drawn together to tackle the climate and nature emergency with much stronger and more joined-up legislation.

Wild Ken Hill is supporting the campaign because it does not feel that the current and forthcoming legislation for the agricultural and environmental sectors is strong enough in addressing climate and ecological breakdown.

By joining the Zero Hour campaign in support of the CEE Bill, Wild Ken Hill hope to provide support to legislation that would begin to address critical issues facing our planet.

They also join fellow rewilders at Knepp in Sussex, as well as several organisations that they work with on a regular basis, including the Beaver Trust, the BTO, the Nature Friendly Farming Network, and Rewilding Britain.

"This Bill would allow exactly those aims to be pursued with real vigour across all sectors of the UK, and so we wholeheartedly offer our support, and encourage everyone to get behind it."

A Zero Hour campaign spokesperson said: "Restoring nature and fighting climate change go hand in glove. Decarbonising our economy isn’t enough. Climate change has gone too far.

"We urgently need the restoration of nature to help absorb greenhouse gases from the atmosphere if we are to limit warming to 1.5°C.

"This means radical change to the way we manage land, and the ocean.”

"The Wild Ken Hill project has done something truly remarkable, showing how quickly land can be restored to create healthy ecosystems capable of absorbing significant amounts of carbon increasing biodiversity and producing sustainable food.
