The Marine Conservation Society is calling on concerned citizens to lobby their MPs to protect wildlife laws that may come into question in the Brexit process.
The Marine Conservation Society is calling on MPs to ensure that the European laws that protect some of our most vulnerable wildlife are not lost.
The UK Government is about to introduce a Repeal Bill that will transfer many elements of existing EU regulations and laws into UK law. UK governments will then be able to amend, repeal and improve the laws as they deem necessary.
Last year, Marine Conservation Society supporters helped save the Nature Directives - the European laws that protect some of our most vulnerable wildlife and mean we now have Special Areas of Conservation in UK seas.
That same legislation (and other environment laws) are now threatened by the Repeal Bill.
The Marine Conservation Society is calling on concerned citizens to contact your MP and remind them of their crucial role in defending our environmental laws, and ensuring they are not left vulnerable to future change.
