P E R S P E C T I V E: Mann And The Wild

On Perspective this Sunday, is our natural world under threat?

The drastic decline in invertebrates and seabird populations forms part of what environmentalists are calling an ecological crisis.

But what’s behind it?

Our native plant and animal life face not only potential climate breakdown, but are fending off a whole host of invasive species too.

We speak with local wildlife experts and look what can be done and is being done to restore the health of our wild ecosystems.

Join Tim Graham Chief Executive at the Manx Wildlife Trust, Richard Selman Ecosystems Policy Manager for the Isle of Man Government and Neil Morris from Manx Birdlife as we discuss man's relationship with nature, the impacts of climate change and, the somewhat controversial presence of wallabies...

We also hear from the Natural History Curator at the Manx Museum Laura McCoy, the organiser of Manx Wildlife Week

Dr Peter Duncan Senior Marine Environment Officer at DEFA features in a special Perspective part two on the health of our oceans.

That's this Sunday from 12 - 2, on your Public Service Broadcaster, Manx Radio.
