Natural London

2209.bush-thumb.jpg Well here’s a fine thing – Londonist starts its Nature-ist column, and then suddenly Boris is all over it, rattling on about valuing London’s green spaces and maximising your local park’s potential. It all seems to come from a largely marketing-led website called Natural England. We’re sure they mean well, but we’re afraid we find that using the terms ‘strategic outcomes’ and 'nature' in the same sentence doesn’t seem right. And as for giving the ‘natural environment’ its own manifesto… Let the wild things be, chaps.

Natural England are a quango but a very powerful one - responsible for ensuring laws protecting habitats and species in England are enforced and followed ;-)

They used to be called English Nature.
