Farmers can play a critical role in tackling the nature and climate crises, but do they also have an important role in assessing the health of the natural environment too? This is the question the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) posed as part of a Defra-funded test and trial.
Alice Groom is a Senior Policy Officer at the RSPB.
Alice leads the organisation’s policy work on agri environment and environmental land management schemes, to ensure these provide a practical means of supporting nature friendly farming.
