Dear Mr Cameron
Congratulations on being the Prime Minister again. I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but if I had been old enough, I wouldn't have voted for you. You never convinced me that you care enough about what really matters.
You see, the thing is, I understand how important the natural world is to everyone, and how everything we touch comes from nature in some form. I made a video for you to see before the election, but I don't think you would have watched it.
You might have time now though, just 5 minutes is all that I am asking. Things have to change for me and for your children and for all the people who care and for all the people who still don't even accept that there is a problem.
The bigger issues of pollution and climate change need to be addressed. These are things you should be shouting out loud about and asking for help with, but this hardly got a mention from you in the run up to the election. There is nothing wrong with saying "I need help with this". Speak to the experts, talk to the people with answers. Put it at the top of your pile of things to do. Please.
There are species at risk of going extinct right on our doorstep, species that don’t need to go extinct. Did you vote in the National Bird Vote? Did you know that our amazing hen harriers are now so persecuted that we may not have any breeding pairs this year? I voted hen harrier. I took a stand to say that what is happening is wrong.
Come and take a walk with me and see the world through my eyes. Come and talk about what matters even though most people take for granted all the things that really do matter.
The natural world is my inheritance, so please make sure that there is something left to leave for my generation.
This is the link to the video I made for you and the other party leaders. I hope you have time to watch it. http://wildeaboutbirds.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/dear-party-leaders-its-time-to-fix.html
