This special State of Nature Question Time follows on directly from the State of Nature report publication last month. The report  showed clearly that nature in the UK is in trouble. What we now need to do is look urgently for creative solutions – and what better place to debate this than in Bristol as part of Bristol's Big Green Week.

The panel taking questions tonight from the audience in Bristol is naturalist, broadcaster and author Simon King; marine biologist, Dr Clare Embling of Exeter University’s Centre for Ecology and Conservation; RSPB Conservation Director Martin Harper; South Devon farmer Rebecca Hosking; and Dr Gary Mantle, Director of Wiltshire Wildlife Trust. The evening will be chaired by TV producer and author Stephen Moss.

If you have any questions, we will be tweeting throughout the event and using #SNQT.
