Derek calls for urgent action to tackle the nature crisis

West Cornwall MP Derek Thomas joins RSPB to call for urgent action and ambitious new laws to tackle the nature crisis.

Mr Thomas joined the RSPB for their annual reception in Parliament this week for an exclusive showcase of projects delivering solutions to the environment and climate emergency.

The RSPB is urging MPs to show leadership for nature by supporting [urgent action/ambitious new laws] to tackle the nature crisis. Urgent actions set out by the Charity include an ambitious Environment Bill with targets for nature’s recovery, at least 2% of GBP to be spent on the environment, and policies to secure net zero emissions by 2050.

Mr Thomas said: "It’s really important to take a moment to reflect on how central nature is to all of our lives, and the huge benefit it has for a functioning and healthy planet”

"With report after report warning of crisis and dire consequences for people and nature I want to be part of the solution,

This means taking action now to secure a future for nature.”
