** Get inspired by nature in the 2020 Photography competition
Campaign for National Parks has joined with the UK’s 15 National Parks to launch the annual photography competition following a viral response to the 2019 competition.

Cormorants in the Broads by Helen Storer, runner up in the 2019 competition.

Nature is in crisis. We must find a way to look after it and bring it closer to our lives. Campaign for National Parks is committed to improving nature in the National Parks and has called for a radical re-think of the way conservation is undertaken in the Parks so that nature may thrive in beautiful landscapes.

John Packman, Chief Executive of the Broads Authority said: “This is an excellent opportunity to get outside, get inspired by nature and share some of the magical moments that make our National Parks so special.”

** National Parks are not theme parks. Campaign for National Parks speaks out!

Campaign for National Parks shares concerns about the approach to development in the National Parks.

Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph, Corinne Pluchino said: “It is absolutely essential that National Parks are properly protected from developments that threaten the very reasons they were designated in the first place: to conserve and enhance their natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage and to enable everyone to enjoy these special qualities…The National Parks are not theme parks - they are internationally recognised landscapes.”

Friends of the Lake District is leading a campaign against commercialisation without conservation: ‘Save Our Lake District’ or SOLD. ([link removed]) Over the coming weeks Campaign for National Parks will be speaking to individuals and organisations from across the National Parks as we seek to make a difference at a national level.
