LONDON — The animals can't protest so people in London did that for them.

Hundreds of marchers demanded better protection for British wildlife at the People's Walk for Wildlife in Hyde Park on Saturday. Many carried pro-nature and pro-animal banners and placards and some wore animal masks.

Organizers said the march was to raise awareness about the threat to species and habitats across the United Kingdom.

Singer Billy Bragg implored the crowd to put the environment "back on the agenda" despite the Conservative government's preoccupation with its Brexit divorce from the European Union.

Organizer Chris Packham has unveiled proposals to help Britain's natural environment, including linking elementary schools to farms so children learn about food production. He has also called for an end to grouse shooting and dredging for scallops.
