Dr Mark Avery | Minister for Upland Ecology, One Year On

Dr Mark Avery is a conservationist, author, founding director of WildJustice, and a contributor to the People’s Manifesto for Wildlife as the Minister for Upland Ecology. Charlie Moores spoke with Mark in Buxton (Derbyshire) for the podcast series 'The People's Manifesto for Wildlife - Revisited' the day before Hen Harrier Day 2019. He asked Mark whether in the twelve months since the publication of the Manifesto there had there been much change in how are our uplands are managed or protected, whether he still stood by his assertion that the UK’s National Parks should be downgraded, and whether he considered that there was a War on Wildlife and if so how can we tackle it.
