RSPB Minsmere is at risk – we need your help to save it (RSPB)
EDF Energy are planning to build a new nuclear power station, Sizewell C, directly on the border of RSPB Minsmere nature reserve, which is home to over 6000 different kinds of animals, plants and fungi.
This could have devastating consequences for nature. The build could destroy an area equivalent to 10 football pitches of protected wildlife site Sizewell Marshes, which is managed by Suffolk Wildlife Trust. Legally protected animals like otters, water voles and marsh harriers could lose their homes, and toxic chemicals and up to 3 million dead fish could be pumped into the sea each year.
We have said that Sizewell C must not go ahead, and we need you to make our voice stronger for nature.
EDF’s plans for Sizewell C are about to be examined by the Planning Inspectorate, and the RSPB and Suffolk Wildlife Trust have submitted an extensive summary of concerns about the impacts on wildlife.
If you share our concerns, please add your voice to ours and show the Planning Inspectorate how many of us Love Minsmere.
