More than 3,000 people signed our petition to Put Nature on the Map in Newcastle.
Our plea for Newcastle City Council to have better regard for biodiversity was debated in the chambers in November last year.
But the council merely promised a Green Infrastructure Delivery Plan: a plan it promised seven years ago and never delivered.
Although disheartened by this dismissal, we need to keep up the pressure.
Yesterday we marked World Wildlife Day by renewing our call.
Our new petition calls for Newcastle City Council to ‘Create a Cabinet role for Biodiversity’.
A Cabinet member alone will not solve the crisis, but it will certainly help get biodiversity on the agenda.
Please sign the petition and share with like-minded friends, family and colleagues.
