 Isle of Wight Recognised as

UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

A Biosphere is one of the few places where people live alongside and protect their natural landscape and wildlife.

We are one of only 7 areas in the whole of the UK that have been awarded this status.

To read more click HERE.

 

How can we meet this responsibility if we permit the destruction of our natural environment to create oilfields. Please  email your council representative to demand that the IWC rejects all permits for oil wells on the Island.

 

NOT ONE WELL!  CLEAN FIELDS NOT OILFIELDS.

Please support the challenge by donating as one of the defendants is representing the Isle of Wight and this injunction will hinder us in opposing proposed oil fields in Arreton
