action
Add a duty requiring MPs to act in the interest of their constituency's wildlife
background
Under the "Code of Conduct" MPs have a general duty to act in the interests of the nation as a whole; and a special duty to their constituents. An additional special duty should be added requiring all MPs to act in the interests of their constituency's wildlife e.g. conserving biodiversity.
additional details
The UK is among the most nature-depleted countries in the world. 40% of all Britain's species are in moderate or steep decline. 1 in 5 British mammals are at risk of extinction. There is widespread evidence that a better relationship with nature can improve our health and wellbeing as well as make our country more enjoyable to experience, beautiful and resilient. It's time our country, with leadership from our MPs, forged a more caring relationship with their "wild constituents".
