Thurrock Marshes Threat
Here's an interesting use of art to punch home another threat to UK wildlife. "Walwyn" has superimposed metal tracks over a photo of a wild bird to promote a campaign aimed at protecting part of Thurrock Marshes from a massive and unwelcome development by Royal Mail. Unfortunately, the area under threat is a "brownfield" site - one that has been built on, then abandoned - which makes it difficult to protect. The powers that be haven't woken up to the fact that UK wildlife is under such pressure that it needs the habitats afforded by ecologically important brownfield sites.
