Noticing NatureThe first report in the Everyone Needs Nature series#EveryoneNeedsNature

IntroductionNoticing Nature2

About this researchThis report:A growing body of evidence points to the positive impactsof nature for people. Yet, while evidence is growing rapidly,this is prompting new questions about the essentialingredients of a positive and sustainable relationshipwith nature for individuals. provides an overview of our main findings, includingdeeper analysis by University of Derby of data fromwide-ranging national surveys we undertook withchildren and adults. Fieldwork for these surveys wasconducted on our behalf by YouGov;Working in partnership with Professor Miles Richardsonand his team of researchers at University of Derby’s NatureConnectedness Research Group, we therefore designed aprogramme of research with both children and adults, toenrich understanding of: shares further insight from a qualitative studyconducted for us by ResearchBods, which builds onrecent research by Professor Richardson and his team. the different factors that are associated with childrenand adults proactively doing things to help nature andwildlife, making use of newly established measures of‘pro-nature conservation’ behaviours; the significance of people’s participation in simple,everyday acts of ‘tuning in’, noticing or paying attentionto nature, relative to other previously explored factorssuch as time spent outdoors; how these and other aspects in people’s relationshipwith nature are associated with higher or lower levelsof wellbeing; and the personal benefits that people report from beingprompted to ‘take notice’ or do things to help natureon a daily basis.Noticing Nature3

Why do some people take action to helpnature? And why do others not?For many people, nature is not an integralpart of their lifeFor a long time, this has been talked about in terms ofeducation. You need to teach children biology so theycan appreciate the natural world. It’s a question ofscientific understanding.This report reveals that just 19% of children regularly noticewildlife. In the past year 57% of adults rarely or neverwatched the sunrise. Only 27% frequently watched clouds.Others have argued that it’s about spending time in thegreat outdoors. Explore the Amazon. Climb a mountain.Get out there and see the world.But what if it’s simpler than that?What if the little things make thebiggest difference?Listening to birdsong. Looking at the stars. These arethings humans have been doing since the dawn of time.What if the biggest blocker between us and saving theplanet (and ourselves) is the fact that we’ve stoppednoticing nature?Yet these activities are free. They make us feel good.And they can be done close to home.According to our research, such moments are adefining factor when it comes to taking pro-natureconservation action.Noticing nature in small, everyday wayscould lead to radical resultsWe’ve found that ‘noticing nature’ and ‘natureconnectedness’ are strongly linked to people takingconservation action.The influence of these factors is far greater than theinfluence of ‘time spent outdoors’ or ‘knowledge andstudy of nature’.People taking conservation action are more likely to be‘noticing nature’ than they are to be studying it. They’re notnecessarily going on big outdoor adventures, but they areenjoying simple moments with the natural world.Noticing Nature4

Connecting with nature on a regularbasis enhances wellbeingThis year marks the National Trust’s125th anniversaryThis report also uncovers a powerful link between natureand both happiness and feeling life is worthwhile. Inaddition to having control over their life, we foundthat ‘nature connectedness’ and ‘noticing nature’had a significant impact on people’s wellbeing.The National Trust was established in 1895 because ourfounders believed in the importance of making nature,beauty and history available to ordinary people.In many ways, this is a hopeful reportThe public are concerned about natureand they want institutions to actIt’s clear that there’s more we can do as individuals.But it’s possible that the first step on that journey istuning into the world around us.We need to connect with nature on a daily basis. We needto notice birds, stars and wild flowers. It’s a radical, butstraightforward proposition. And, in many ways, it’s nota new one.Noticing NatureAs part of the anniversary celebrations, we’ve announcedthree new ambitions: We’ll be carbon neutral by 2030 We’ll plant 20 million trees in 10 years We’ll create green corridors for people and natureWe will also encourage people to connect withnature in simple ways.

How thisreport wascreatedNoticing Nature11

National surveyThe Noticing Nature challengeWe surveyed nationally representative samples of 2,096adults aged 16 (in England, Wales and Northern Ireland)and 1,051 children (in Great Britain) aged between 8 and 15.We recruited 283 adults to The Noticing Nature challenge.This included a mix of the general population, NationalTrust members and National Trust volunteers.This is the first population-wide survey of its kind to focuson pro-nature conservation action, such as providing foodfor wildlife – rather than pro-nature environmental action,such as cutting back on air travel.Participants were given a programme of simple ‘noticingnature’ activities. The activities were informed by theUniversity of Derby’s work on noticing the good thingsin nature.The survey explores attitudes to nature, participation innature activities, participation in pro-nature conservationaction and self-reported wellbeing. It looks at relationshipsbetween these factors and ‘nature connectedness’.‘Nature connectedness’ is an internationally acceptedpsychological construct that describes the closeness ofan individual’s relationship with nature.We measured the impact these activities had onindividuals, using an online tool where participants kepta diary. This research was undertaken by ResearchBods,a specialist in research with online communities.The survey design and data analysis were undertakenby the National Trust’s audience research team incollaboration with the University of Derby NatureConnectedness Research Group. The survey was conductedby YouGov.The children’s survey took place on 19–24 July 2019.The adults’ survey took place on 29–30 July 2019.Noticing NatureExisting evidenceOur research builds upon existing evidence aboutpeople’s relationship with the natural world.Please see the appendix for further information.

Defining ‘nature connectedness’We measured ‘nature connectedness’ with a questionbased on Wesley Shultz’s Inclusion of Nature in Self Scale.We used the same question for adults and children:Q. Please select the picture belowwhich BEST describes your relationshipwith nature.The first picture shows you and nature being far awayfrom each other and the last picture shows you and naturebeing close to each other. Imagining one of the circles isyou and the other is nature, how interconnected are youwith nature right tureSelfNatureNoticing Nature13

FindingsNoticing Nature14

Concern for natureThere are very high levels of concernabout the state of natureAround three quarters (73%) of children and four out offive adults (81%) say they are concerned about a decline inwildlife in the UK. (Figure 3)Our research also indicates that levelsof concern could be growingMore than half of children (55%) and just under half ofadults (49%) say they are more concerned about natureand wildlife than they were a year ago. (Figure 4)Amongst adults, we find that increased concern is highestamong younger age groups, with 56% of those aged 16–24agreeing that they are more concerned than they were ayear ago.Many adults have noticed a declinein wildlifeJust over half of adults (52%) agree that they ‘havepersonally noticed a reduction in UK wildlife in theirlifetime’. This is highest amongst those aged 55 .60% of this group agree that they have personallyseen a reduction in their lifetime.Noticing Nature15

Lookingto ourfuture18

Looking to our futureThere’s widespread pessimism aboutthe future of the UK’s natureAlmost 7 in 10 (67%) adults believe the natural environmentwill be in a worse state in 20 years. (Figure 5)iiiBy comparison, only 1 in 10 (11%) see any prospect forimprovement. Only 2% believe that the natural environmentwill be ‘much better’ in 20 years. A further 9% believe itwill be ‘slightly better’.There’s a strong desire to protectnature and scepticism about politicians’motivationsAlmost everyone agrees that it’s important that nature hasstrong protections. (Figure 6)86% agree that ‘it’s important that there are strong lawsto protect nature in the UK’. Meanwhile, 75% agree that‘I would be very concerned if Brexit reduced protection fornature in the UK’.Our survey found several potentialreasons for this pessimismA large majority of people acknowledge that ‘the balanceof nature is very delicate and easy to upset’ and feel that‘humans are severely abusing the planet’. (Figure 6)Most adults disagreed with the statement that ‘humanshave the right to modify the natural environment to suittheir needs’.Noticing Nature19

Figure 5Pessimism for the future ofthe natural environment lmost 4 in 10 are extremely pessimistic, saying thatAin 20 years’ time nature and the natural environmentwill be ‘much worse’ for today’s generation of children.Only 2 in 100 think it will be ‘much better’ in 20years’ time. T he youngest adults in our sample are even morepessimistic with 45% of 16 to 24 year olds saying itwill be ‘much worse’. Q.

Organisationaland governmentaction

Few adults believe that organisationsor influencers are doing enough toprotect natureThe majority feel that politicians, house builders,construction companies and the big supermarkets‘could do more’. (Figure 7)Children have similarly high expectationsHalf of children (50%) say that their parents or guardians‘could do more’. (Figure 7) Six in 10 (61%) say that theirschool ‘could do more’. Four out of five (81%) agree thatadults in general ‘could do more’.The same applies to energy companies, big technologycompanies (such as Apple and Google), local councils,local Members of Parliment (MPs), water companiesand farmers.There’s no room for complacency amongst organisationsdirectly working to help nature. Around one in three peoplebelieve that conservation organisations and environmentalcampaign groups ‘could do more’.Noticing Nature23

Figure 7:Doing enough to help andprotect nature in the UKFew adults think many organisations or individualswith influence are doing enough to protect nature.Around 4 in 5 people feel politicians in general,house builders, the big supermarkets, energycompanies and big technology companies ‘coulddo more’. Expectations for ‘doing more’ aren’tfar behind for local councils, local MPs and watercompanies. More than half (54%) also think farmers‘could do more’, and a smaller but significantproportion of people believe that conservationorganisations (38%) and environmental campaigngroups (36%) ‘could do more’.Amongst children around 8 in 10 think that adultscould be doing more, 6 in 10 that their schoolcould be doing more, and 1/2 that their parent(s)or guardian(s) could be doing more.Adults in general81%9%10%28%11%39%10%My schoolChildren61%My parent(s) My guardian(s)50%Politicians (excluding local MPs)84%5%11%House building and construction companiesAdults83%5%12%The big supermarkets (such as Asda, Sainsburys, Tesco)6%81%13%Energy companies (for example EDF, British Gas)80%5%15%9%13%Your local council78%Technology companies (for example Apple, Google)5%78%17%Water companies (such as Thames Water, Scottish Water)9%76%Q.

(Figure 8)Likewise, there is only one activity – ‘putting food or waterout for wildlife’ – that more than half of adults (55%) dowith great frequency. (Figure 9)26

Figure 8Pro-nature conservationbehaviours in childrenWe find variations in participation amongst children based on geographyfor some behaviours. For example, children living in Town and Fringelocations were the most likely to say they had ‘often or sometimes put foodor water out for wildlife’ (62%). In comparison, children living in Urban orRural areas were less likely to have done this (53% and 55% respectively).This translated into regional and national differences, with childrenin London less likely to have ‘often’ or ‘sometimes’ done this (49%)compared to children in Wales (64%) or Scotland (63%).Q.

We explored how the following factorshelped explain the variation in people’sconservation actions: Demographics Nature connectedness (as defined on page 56) Time spent outdoors How likely they are to engage with nature throughsimple activities Indirect engagement with nature (for examplewatching or listening to nature programmes on radio orTV) Knowledge and study of nature Valuing and concern for nature Pro-nature environmental action (that is, actions linkedto global, environmental concerns – rather than local,conservation concerns)Some of these factors worked to explain 70% of thevariation in people’s pro-nature conservation behaviours.Noticing Nature‘Noticing nature’ has the greatestinfluence on conservation action.We found that simple forms of engagement – everydayacts of paying attention to nature – were the most closelylinked to conservation action.In particular, we identified seven significant ‘noticingnature’ behaviours: Watching wildlife (for example bird watching) Listening to birdsong Smelling wild flowers aking a photo/drawing or painting a picture Tof a natural views, plant, flower or animal Taking time to notice butterflies and/or bees Watching the sunrise Watching clouds‘Nature connectedness’ was also a key factor inconservation action.Reading and talking about nature, environmentalbehaviours, levels of concern, and knowledge ofnature also helped explain conservation behaviours.29

Spending time outdoors doesn’tnecessarily drive conservation action.Surprisingly, ‘time spent outdoors’ does not appear tosignificantly increase the likelihood of an individual takingconservation action.It’s what you do with your time that makes thecritical difference – rather than how much timeyou spend outdoors.People who ‘notice nature’ are much more likely to dothings to help nature.People who ‘always’ or ‘often’ do the seven ‘noticingnature’ activities are much more likely to take conservationaction than those who ‘rarely’ or ‘never’ do these activities.(Figure 10)Noticing Nature30

Factorslinked towellbeing

Our nature survey also explored the linkbetween people’s relationship withnature and their: self-reported happiness s elf-reported view on the extent to which theyfelt their life was worthwhileFor children we limited our research to theirself-reported happiness.Adults with a strong connectionto nature are happier‘Nature connectedness’ was a significant predictor of ‘lifebeing worthwhile’ and of happiness – a link stronger thanestablished factors, such as age and marital status.Adults who were the most nature connected (the top25%) scored an average of 19% higher than the rest of thepopulation, when it came to feeling that the things they doin their life were worthwhile. They also scored an averageof being happier by 15%.Smelling wild flowers is stronglylinked to wellbeing in adults.The simple activity of smelling wild flowers emerged asa significant predictor of feeling happy and feeling thatlife is ‘worthwhile’. (Figure 11)Noticing Nature33

Figure 11Link between smelling wild flowersand levels of happiness or lifebeing worthwhileWe see a relationship between ‘noticing nature’ activitiesand levels of happiness and feeling that life is worthwhile.We see this clearly for example in relation to the % whohave ‘often’ or ‘sometimes’ smelt wild flowers in the pastyear.

Relaxing in a garden, watching wildlife, and noticing andcelebrating nature were also significant predictors of lifebeing worthwhile. However, they were smaller predictorsthan ‘nature connectedness’.Hillwalking, relaxing in the garden, noticing andtalking about nature, were significant predictors ofhappiness. Again, they were smaller predictors than‘nature connectedness’.Adults who scored highly on lifefeeling ‘worthwhile’We identified two groups in our adult sample with veryhigh or very low scores for life being ‘worthwhile’.
