Do you have an opinion on the role of conservation in the UK? As a conservation professional are we restoring our natural habitats to a uniified functional ecological system or are we just gardening/farming on a massive scale? If you’re not a professional, does it matter to you? What do you want from “nature”, bearing in mind there isn’t anything you do that nature doesn’t influence? We all have a role in creating our Future Landscape. I’d be interested in hearing from you if you have an opinion. You can post here, email me at, or post comments at

This is a bit of ground work for an article I’m working on so please do comment- your views are all important to me.
