Political Engagement
  • 2021 is a critical year for the environment and will set the course for the next decade, with countries coming forward to set new climate and nature pledges for 2030.
  • Young people are calling for urgent action to address the crises facing nature and the climate. This year will lock in the actions countries will take by 2030.
  • Nature and climate are interlinked: climate change is one of the greatest threats to the natural world, but restoring nature can tackle climate change by locking away carbon in healthy ecosystems.

Aims:

  1. To put pressure on politicians in the lead up to COP26 to commit to protecting nature
  2. To increase awareness of issues surrounding local nature + biodiversity

And there is still so much more to the bottlenose dolphin than meets the eye! You can learn everything from its position in the food chain and where it hangs about in the UK to its status in the big 3 and how it is protected. You could discover the threats posed to them and the severity of these, but how care of the oceans could be the solution! For even more depth, you can check out studies from the University of Aberystwyth itself, and how the Cardigan Bay has become a special area for conservation.And there is still so much more to the bottlenose dolphin than meets the eye!
