Britain's wildlife is not being protected because the government is failing to meet its own targets, a report from group of charities suggests.
The group of 41 organisations, including The Wildlife Trusts and the RSPB, says the government is failing to deliver a third of its commitments to the environment
Among the concerns listed in Nature Check 2013 are the protection of green belt land, farm animal welfare and reversing wildlife declines.
