BLAENAU Gwent MP Nick Smith attended the launch of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds’ (RSPB) Let Nature Sing campaign last week.
The charity has released a single made-up entirely of birdsong to raise awareness of the declining number of birds in the UK.
The RSPB is asking for people to download, stream and share the single, spreading the word that people across the UK are passionate about nature’s recovery.
The track features some of the UK’s most recognisable birdsong, from birds that are on their way to disappearing forever such as the Cuckoo, Nightingale, and Turtle Dove.
Nick Smith MP said: “It was great to meet with the RSPB to hear about their Let Nature Sing single.
“It’s a brilliant idea with a serious message at its heart.
“I often look out at the pond in Nantyglo, watching the wildlife and so I am pleased to be supporting this campaign
“I’m told that there are 40 million fewer birds in the UK today than 50 years ago.
“I would encourage everyone to share the Let Nature Sing single to help spread awareness of this issue.
“The RSPB website also has some fantastic tips on the kind of things we can all do to help reverse nature’s decline.”
The Let Nature Sing single is available on all major platforms. More information can be found here.
