Wildlife Crime

Since my election I have made a concerted effort to stand up for nature in Westminster, all too often this issue can be overlooked in favour of what might be considered as bigger policy questions of the day. Ensuring a sustainable natural world is an essential part of enabling a healthy life for us all.

The National Wildlife Crime Unit (NWCU) is a vital part of this process and I am urging Ministers to protect its funding.
