Report of a speech by United Kingdom Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Michael Gove at WWF's Living Planet Centre, Woking, 21 July 2017 at which he set out his vision on the future of the UK's natural environment, particularly in the context of the UK leaving the United Kingdom.

He said: 'Leaving the EU gives us a once in a lifetime opportunity to reform how we manage agriculture and fisheries, and therefore how we care for our land, our rivers and our seas. And we can recast our ambition for our country’s environment, and the planet. In short, it means a Green Brexit'.
