Juniper appointed for second terms as Natural England chair

Environment secretary, George Eustice, has confirmed that Tony Juniper CBE has been reappointed as chair of Natural England for a second term. Juniper’s second term will be for three years and will run from 23 April 2022 to 22 April 2025.

Juniper (pictured), said: “In this second term my focus will be even more firmly on the delivery of the government’s ambitious goals for Nature recovery, including implementing biodiversity net gain, delivering programmes for key habitats, such as peatlands, gearing up species recovery programmes, initiating more landscape-scale nature projects, supporting government to deliver nature-based solutions to combat climate change and implementing new land management schemes, and harnessing all of that to establish the Nature Recovery Network which is so vital for overall success.
