I would like to see more informaton in the popular press, magazines etc on the subject of biodiversity, sustainable food production etc. Maybe the Government does give serious consideration to these very important subjects but it does not appear to be the case.

There is a way consumers can do their bit, buy purchasing food brands that are produced to "Conservation Grade" standards (see www.conservationgrade.org). All food grown in this way is produced by farmers who devote 10% of their land to specific wildlife habitats to stop bird and bee declines etc.
