Stand Up for National Parks at the 2024 Election

With the 2024 General Election just a matter of weeks away, it is critical that as many of us as possible use this opportunity to speak up for our National Parks.  

Despite the National Parks of England and Wales celebrating their 75th anniversary this year, they are under threat like never before with chronic wildlife depletion, water pollution and a growing divide in terms of who can live, work and visit these places, vital to our health and wellbeing.

Here are five ways that you can stand-up for National Parks at this election:
